Placements in Schools and Districts

Our Partnership and Placement Office cultivates strong relationships with schools and districts to place graduate candidates with great mentors. We believe that the strength of our graduate elementary and secondary education, school counseling, and school psychology programs offer schools and districts uniquely prepared candidates who bring four distinct values to your students:

Our Candidates are well prepared.

Value: social justice equity
Impact: creating democratic community with diverse populations

Value: extensive discipline-specific pedagogy preparation
Impact: ability to create and implement content-rich pedagogy

Our Candidates are well supported.

Value: For Teacher Education/School Psychology: year-long placement; for School Counseling: semester placements followed by yearlong focused placement
stability and consistency for students and schools

Value: Lewis & Clark field support
Impact: multiple partners collaborating for candidate success


Our Partnership and Placement coordinators, in conjunction with program faculty, act as liaisons with schools and districts to ensure that Lewis & Clark candidates are matched well with great mentors.
