This experience contributes significantly to each candidate's development and growth from pre-service to in-service teachers, counselors, administrators, and other school personnel. The Clinical Practice's mission is to provide quality internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate candidates enrolled in internships with highly qualified cooperating teachers and site supervisors. Clinical Practice Experiences are arranged through Student Services in connection with accredited school partners and agencies. These diverse experiences are designed to facilitate candidates' development to "Become Catalysts for Learning".
