Clinical Partnerships


Our EPP Partnership Program

Purpose Statement
To provide a forum for collaboration between the School of Education (SOE) and its education partners to ensure a mutually beneficial relationship for all involved in the Educator Preparation Program (EPP).

EPP Partnership Model
The SOE collaborates with P-12 school partners to design field experiences that reflect diverse settings to ensure that candidates demonstrate their developing effectiveness and positive impact on all students’ learning and development. Field experiences, including technology-enhanced learning opportunities, are structured to have multiple performance-based assessments at key points within the program to demonstrate candidates’ development of the knowledge, skills, and professional dispositions, that are associated with a positive impact on the learning and development of all P-12 students.
