Clinical Practice Network

Providing high-quality clinical practice for our teacher candidates and positively impacting P-12 student learning, our network partners work with us to create developmentally appropriate experiences. Through mutually beneficial and reciprocal partnerships, our candidates can apply their knowledge, practice professional skills, and develop the professional dispositions necessary to become successful teachers. Partnerships provide a supportive environment for preservice teachers, where all stakeholders are committed to P-12 student learning, educator preparation, and faculty development.
