Program Convener Council
The Program Convener Council is a collaborative and advisory body to the TEC that is comprised of the program conveners (leaders) of all initial and advanced teacher licensure programs at Purdue. The College of Education (COE) Associate Dean for Learning and Engagement chairs the Program Convener Council. The COE Assessment Coordinator serves as an ex-officio member.
The purposes of the Program Convener Council are:
Encourage and support teacher education programs at Purdue

Provide support for the accreditation of teacher education at Purdue
Encourage networking, collaboration and professional development among teacher education program faculty and staff
Serve as an advisory body to the TEC and provide recommendations as needed
The Council will meet approximately monthly during the academic year (September - April) at the discretion of the chair. Each spring the members of the Program Convener Council will elect two of its members to serve staggered terms as representatives of the Program Convener Council to the TEC. One of these individuals also will serve a two year term on the TECXC as an ex-officio member, usually the representative in year-two of his/her term.
