Office of Field & Clinical Experiences

"WSSU is committed to the preparation of school personnel who effectively model social justice in a diverse 21st century learning community."

The Office of Field & Clinical Experiences (OFCE) is responsible for the oversight of all partnerships with school districts and centers that provide placements for early field, preclinical, and clinical experiences for WSSU pre-majors and majors as they develop into effective teachers. The OFCE recognizes that school/center personnel and university faculty share responsibility for preparing highly qualified teachers who can facilitate learning for students in diverse 21st century classrooms.

Early field experiences, the preclinical practicum, and clinical internship are vital components of the Educator Preparation Program at WSSU.
