Licensure Support

We support current teacher licensure students throughout their time at the University. Major aspects of our work include: new student orientation, completing the Minnesota state teacher licensing process, and post-graduation job search.

Program Review & Accountability

From new curriculum to program redesign, we work with college programs, the Minnesota Board of Teaching, and national accreditors to make sure state and national standards are both met and exceeded. We collect and disseminate unit level data for external review, with a special interest in candidates who do not finish their programs with their designated cohort.
