Welcome to the Teacher Education Program!

One of the primary concerns of the university, as well as one of its principle opportunities for service, is in the field of teacher education. The university is committed to meeting the need for well-trained and dedicated teachers. It recognizes teacher education as an institution-wide responsibility. The unifying theme for all of the education programs is the development of professional educators as facilitative teachers who understand and value the process of learning.
