Center for Professional Practice

Welcome to the Center for Professional Practice (CPP)! Located in 303 Hawkins Hall, CPP is a service office in the College of Education at Towson University. We work with all educator preparation programs at TU. The major purpose of the Center is to assist in the placement of TU students in a variety of field settings and internships. We also help manage our Professional Development School (PDS) partnerships and work closely with Towson faculty and district personnel.

CPP is TU’s official conduit to Maryland school systems for field and clinical experiences. Our goal is to provide these experiences that will help Towson University’s future teachers become facilitators of active learning for diverse and inclusive populations.

CPP works to strengthen ties across all of our campus programs and school system partners. It is important to keep our ties strong within this community in order to continue to provide collaborative leadership and high quality experiences in the schools for our teacher candidates and the students they teach.
