The mission of the College of Education and Professional Studies (CEPS) is to prepare competent, enlightened citizens who will enhance their respective professions, commit themselves to socially responsible leadership, and help develop the global economy in a spirit of cooperation. Each academic unit of the college has developed specific goals to address this mission.

Graduates of the College of Education and Professional Studies programs are Professionally Prepared and Profession Ready, or P3R. Graduates enter the job force right after graduation and make an immediate positive impact on their profession.

School of Education

The Education programs at CWU are all about preparing students to enter the greatest profession in the world….Teaching! Our Education programs approach learning in a supportive and positive environment where students and staff share responsibility for knowledge, and where students and staff value working and learning together. Graduates enter their teaching positions after graduation and make an immediate positive impact on the students they teach.

CEPS facilitates communication between and among the respective disciplines that contribute to the preparation of educators, including teachers, school administrators, and school psychologists. Supporting the mission, purpose, and governance structure of CEPS is the constructivist philosophy-a belief that knowledge is actively created by learners and made meaningful when learners relate new information to prior knowledge.

The School of Education Teacher Preparation Program is administered through CEPS. Admission to the university does not guarantee admission into the School of Education Teacher Preparation Program. Students must apply to the School of Education Teacher Preparation Program and meet specific application criteria before being admitted.
