Mission - Teacher Education
The mission of the Department of Teacher Education is to prepare students to become education professionals by providing knowledge and skills that reflect the highest standards of quality in the field, and that form a foundation for lifelong learning.

A primary emphasis is to develop attitudes and values in students, which are indicative of caring, competent and committed educators and paraprofessionals. The Program supports children, families, and the community by educating entry level, transfer, and returning students in current professional practices and theory through classroom, clinical and field experiences.
