Educator Preparation Program Mission Statement:

We work within our communities to prepare caring, competent educators and to promote inclusive and transformative education practices.

Welcome to the Teacher Education Department. Teaching has been called “the noblest profession.” It has also been called “the profession that teaches all the other professions.” Teaching is a demanding, but rewarding profession. Former U.S. Secretary of Education Shirley Hufstedler stated: “The role of the teacher remains the highest calling of a free people.”

The Teacher Education Department is an Accreditation candidate through the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC), with review in November 2014. All of our programs are designed to prepare pre-service elementary, secondary, and special education teachers to meet the Utah Effective Teaching Standards (UETS) . Upon completion of our programs, students will demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to be effective and successful entry-level teachers.  

Our dedicated and diverse faculty and staff are here to help you achieve your goals. We have extensive experience working in the public school system, and we have structured our courses and field experiences to provide you with the knowledge and skills to become an effective teacher.
