The Office of School-Based Experiences (OSBE) is the link between the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences and our partnering schools where preservice teacher candidates are placed. OSBE arranges all placements and provides information and support services for candidates, faculty, staff, and school-based partners.


To ensure that our preservice teacher education candidates have the knowledge, skills, and diversity of experiences needed for them to be well prepared to enter the educational workforce.

We also are committed to supporting and strengthening collaborative relationships with our partnering educators, schools, and districts to ensure our preservice teachers are learning in optimal ways and making a positive impact on their students’ learning and motivation to learn.
