We envision that the Education programs at Purdue University North Central will prepare candidates to complete our mission, and meet the challenges they will encounter as classroom teachers in educating students in our global, diverse and democratic society.
Our candidates will have the knowledge that allows them to integrate theory with practice so that they will be viewed as effective and reflective educators. They will possess the necessary knowledge, skills, dispositions and will be committed to providing all children with developmentally appropriate instruction to foster students' learning, discovery and engagement.
As they gain classroom experience, our graduates will be seen as school leaders who are advocates for student growth and school reform. They will continually reflect and seek to grow professionally, and support professional organizations.
