Welcome to the Office of Clinical Practice! The goal of the Office of Clinical Practice (OCP) is to provide support to students engaged in clinical practice through one of our many College of Education programs.  Students engage in clinical practice at various levels, beginning with observation in Clinical I fieldwork all the way through to Clinical III fieldwork which encompasses Student Teaching and Internship opportunities. 

On of the many ways OCP supports clinical practice is to develop and maintain professional partnerships between the university and schooling community, thereby allowing for enriching experiences that provide high-quality work-based learning and pedagogical understanding.  Clinical placements and support are made possible through collaborative efforts of school districts, charters, and private organizations, as directed by university guidelines.
