Community Engagement

We have a long tradition of community service that began with the vision of its founders in 1918. Dr. Arthur H. Wilde, the first dean of the School, wrote, “Our policy has been to keep in as vital touch with the everyday work of the schools as we could—to know the needs of the teachers and of the school officers and to give immediate satisfaction to those needs, yet with a view to the broader education of these teachers and officers.”

The School of Education is involved with the community through the College Access and Completion Office, student practicums and internships, and through other programs and projects.
