The primary mission of the Teacher Education Department (TED) is to offer quality programs leading to initial certification and advanced degree programs leading to professional certification or added endorsements. As a faculty we are committed to promoting socially responsible learning communities that honor and empower all learners. We strive to model best practices that prepare professionals who demonstrate intentional competence as dedicated practitioners, reflective scholars, and responsible citizens.

The Department of Teacher Education is also host of the Early Childhood Education-Child Welfare: Play Research Symposium. To view their collection, visit here.
