The mission of the Teacher Education Program is to prepare ethical and reflective educators who promote equity, exemplify professionalism, engage with communities, and thrive as leaders in the contemporary learning environment.

A Faculty Advisor in your corner

Strong academic advising can be critical to your success. So, our faculty, the people who know the curriculum best, advise you on which courses to take and when. Every student is assigned a faculty advisor in their declared major. Your advisor will become your best champion, the one who helps you find research opportunities or internships, teaches your favorite course, and writes your recommendations long after you’ve graduated.
