At Colorado State University, our CEP faculty teach and model education best practices. Our program is built on partnerships with local school districts. Our future teachers gain experience in real schools with real students.
A training and research clinic staffed by our Counseling and Career Development master’s students (under the direct supervision of licensed mental health professionals), the clinic offers outpatient counseling services to the public, free of charge.
Our program prepares you to be a high-qualified teacher, superintendent, principal, or another kind of leader in education. You gain skills to direct educational programs, become a facilitator of educational change, and implement new approaches to solving the problems confronting education.
The partnership established between CSU and the Poudre School District offers our licensure students the opportunity to work in real classrooms with PK-12 students, ensuring they are highly prepared to enter the profession. This partnership also benefits PK-12 teachers and students, providing extra help in district classrooms and strong applicants to open teaching positions.
We hope you will stay connected with your alma mater, the School of Education, and your fellow students. The connections you made – and those you rekindle – are an important part of what makes your CSU experience unique and meaningful.
