As part of a collaborative arrangement, students enrolled in teacher education programs at the School of Education (SED) complete field study in a diversity of settings offered by the member districts and agencies. Funding for enrichment activities and professional activities in the districts and agencies is provided by SED. Appointed representatives from the various schools and agencies and SED faculty form the Consortium Council, the governing body whose members review funding proposals, discuss relevant educational issues, and regularly communicate with Consortium members.
