Engage the Field: Bolstering Partnerships to Create Impact
Too often, schools of education are perceived as separate from the “real work” on the ground. Not so at USC Rossier. Seeing and understanding the daily challenges and opportunities for today’s education professionals informs our research and our degree programs. USC Rossier’s deep commitment to working shoulder to shoulder with practitioners distinguishes our school, our faculty and our students.
As a result of USC Rossier’s work directly in the field, thousands of students and their families now have increased access to a high-quality education. Our bold commitment to work directly in the field is a model of success for others in higher education to follow. Field partnerships are our mission in action.
Field partnerships—from the Southern California College Advising Corps, to Ednovate high schools and Math for America Los Angeles—help us translate research into practice, increase knowledge and provide invaluable hands-on experience, all while making an immediate impact in our community.
