About the Preparation Program*
Western Kentucky University offers an inviting, nurturing, and challenging environment, which is responsive to the intellectual, social, and cultural needs of a diverse learning community. In support of the University's mission, the Teacher Education Program at Western prepares educators who demonstrate best practices in teaching that include respect for and recognition of diversity in the integration of the arts, humanities, and sciences in the spirit of inquiry for life-long learning in real world environments. We believe that there is nothing more central to the role for which teachers are prepared at Western Kentucky University than that of facilitating the learning of all children and youth at high levels and being accountable for results.
