Teacher Education Council
Since its inception in 1963, the Teacher Education Council (TEC) at Purdue University has been broadly representative of the academic colleges, departments, and programs that participate in the undergraduate and graduate instruction of students preparing to meet licensure requirements. The TEC was constituted to "represent the University faculty in the establishment of academic standards for all students pursuing curricula leading to teacher certification."
The Teacher Education Council (TEC) is comprised of members of the teaching faculty and administrative professional staff in academic units preparing professional educators on the West Lafayette, Calumet, and North Central campuses. In addition, the College of Education (COE) Dean chairs the TEC and is its chief executive officer.
