Professional Education Unit Council

Admission to Teacher Education Program Policy

Student Teaching

The Professional Education Unit is the body that is responsible for Teacher Education at Shepherd University. The Professional Education Unit Council (PEUC) is chaired by the Director of Teacher Education and is composed of the Specialization Coordinators from each Specialization, all members of the Department of Education, and two elected teacher candidates. In this way, the PEUC exemplifies how faculty from the Arts, Humanities, and Sciences share responsibility and authority with the faculty from Education in determining what is important in teacher education. The PEUC, through bi-monthly meetings, administers, coordinates, evaluates, monitors, reviews, and revises the Teacher Education Program at Shepherd University. The PEUC has the responsibility to ensure that all Specializations are conducted in a manner that is consistent with the stated philosophy, theme, and objectives of the teacher education program.
