Urban Teaching Experiences

Urban Courses & Field Experiences
Project SMART and the Center for Urban Schools in the School of Education are resource centers for communication among students, staff, faculty, and others who are interested in urban education issues. The initiatives of the Center for Urban Schools support the School of Education’s goal to provide every graduate a field experience in an urban high needs school setting. For more information, contact Dr. Pat Russo, Director of the Center for Urban Schools (310 Park Hall, 315-312-2632) or visit the website of the Center for Urban Schools.

Student Teaching in New York City and Overseas
Some of the most exciting and rewarding teaching positions are in New York City or overseas. Opportunities for fulfilling student teaching requirements in New York City are offered through collaboration with the SUNY Urban Teacher Education Center (SUTEC, http://www.suny.edu/sutec/). Opportunities for student teaching in Australia, Bolivia, and New Zealand are offered through the SUNY Oswego Office of International Education & Programs.
