NCATE/BOT Accreditation Student learning...all students, all places


The Teacher Education Program at the University of Minnesota Morris is part of the life-long development of an effective teacher and includes the study of liberal arts disciplines, pedagogy, teaching, and other life experiences. The program is based on a belief that a successful teacher is one who reflects on teaching and makes instructional decisions that ensure student learning for all students in all places.
