Placing candidates in Educational Administration, Teaching
Emily Fortune Hancock serves as the strategic partnership coordinator for the Graduate School. Her work is grounded in anti-racism and intersectional feminism. She facilitates clinical placements for future teachers and administrators, as well as in-service teachers pursuing additional endorsements. She also works to establish collaborative partnerships with our local districts, state and county agencies, nonprofits, and other universities to advance the social justice mission of the Graduate School.
Before coming to Lewis & Clark, she managed a variety of institutional partnerships to encourage education equity at Cleveland High School, Portland Public Schools, and the Neighborhood Schools Program at the University of Chicago. She is in constant awe of what we can accomplish when individuals and institutions with shared moral vision combine resources and collaborate.
Emily holds an MA in Divinity from the University of Chicago and a BA in History and Urban Studies from the American University of Paris. She is also sometimes proud of being a native Floridian.
