The mission of the Office of School and Community Partnerships is to encourage and support our education professional candidates in their journey from participant observers to certified education professionals. Our goal is to work with our partner school districts to help each education professional candidate develop the skills, knowledge and dispositions necessary to become a skilled professional dedicated to educating all students.
Through our extensive partnerships with school districts in surrounding communities, Adelphi University offers teaching candidates a range of opportunities to hone their teaching skills, meet program requirements, or receive paid graduate internships.
Adelphi offers placements in over 20 school districts throughout the metropolitan area. All field experiences are carefully supervised to make sure that candidates develop and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to help all students learn. Teacher candidates must have diverse fieldwork experiences, including at least one placement at a high-needs site within our existing partnerships.
