CTE Responsibilities

Council on Teacher Education Responsibilities

The Council on Teacher Education (CTE) within the Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs supports students and faculty in over twenty educator and school personnel preparation programs at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). CTE oversees the programs that prepare students for licensure in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade school settings by the Illinois State Board of Education.

CTE is responsible for communicating requirements for teacher education and for providing avenues of communication among all areas of the University concerned with school personnel education. CTE has three primary areas of responsibility: accreditation of educator preparation programs, supervision of field experiences and licensing of eligible teacher candidates.

CTE serves programs in the College of Education; the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; the College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts; the College of Nursing; and the Jane Addams College of Social Work.

Title 2 Report

In 1998 the Higher Education Reauthorization Act passed by the U.S. Congress mandated that all government-funded colleges with teacher preparation programs develop and publish an annual report on their teacher education programs. Included in the report is information on student teaching, the pass rates of program completers on state tests (Test of Academic Proficiency, Content Area and Assessment of Professional Teaching) and contextual information reflecting on the quality of the teacher preparation program.
