Our Educator Preparation Program is committed to preparing teacher candidates for entry and sustainability in educational settings. We are committed to embedding high quality research-based practices into all clinical placement settings.

Our office works closely with area schools to arrange high-quality field experience placements as well as clinical teaching placements. Moreover, our office offers mentoring and guidance to beginning educators during the early years of teaching through our New Teacher Academy.
