Vision and Mission

Consistent with the institutional vision and mission and with our heritage as an institution with a major commitment to quality teacher preparation, the vision of the teacher education unit at Austin Peay State University is to prepare highly qualified professionals who are knowledgeable and skilled in standards-based practice.  Our goal is to prepare competent, reflective, and caring educators who, while working in collaboration with other professionals, will serve as change agents to foster development and learning in the lives of all learners.  Our theme, “Preparing Professionals Through Standards-Based Practices” reflects our vision, mission, and goals, and supports reflective, data-informed planning for continuous improvement.
