What We Do

The Office of Field Services (OFS) facilitates educative field experiences for students in the College of Education and Human Services and provides a resource for students in their field experiences.  Serving as the bridge between CSU students, University Affiliates, and school district personnel, OFS works to provide the best possible overall experience for students in their last few years of their education program.  The College works with a "partnership" model, through which it serves both pre-service teachers and area districts' students and teachers, by providing quality field experiences for future teachers in the classrooms of experienced mentor teachers.
