Teacher Education and Conceptual Framework

The preparation of educators has remained a prime mission of the University as 85% of the region's teachers are educated at ETSU. Although teacher preparation is a major responsibility of the College of Education, the College has broadened its mission into other areas of undergraduate and graduate study. Almost 50% of the graduate students in the College of Education are non-teacher education majors.

In addition to the four departments within the College, the University School functions as a fifth department. The University School operates on a year-round calendar, the only K-12 laboratory school in the nation with this alternative calendar. The Center for Child Learning and Development is a part of the College and serves as a research area to study the education of young children and provide childcare opportunities for infants through age four. The Quillen Chair of Excellence in Teaching and Learning is a specially appointed senior professor who mentors faculty, develops external funding relations, and provides instructional guidance in an area of expertise.

Fully accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education and approved by the Tennessee Department of Education, ETSU's College of Education enjoys a rich history with many success stories that support our goal of Educating Leaders in the 21st Century.
