School of Teacher Education


The School of Teacher Education (STE), in partnership with other departments in the University, offers professional education courses and programs designed to prepare students to become teachers of excellence for elementary and senior high/junior high/middle schools in both public and private school arenas. The faculty at Indiana Wesleyan University believes teacher education is a campus-wide responsibility. As a product of this cooperative perspective, the Teacher Education Program is a collaborative partnership between general education, subject matter, and professional education programs. The IWU Teacher Education Program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and is a member of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE).
