Teacher Academy

The College of Education, Health, and Human Services's Teacher Academy, founded in May 2006, is designed to provide an avenue for focused and timely study in areas of special interest. Teacher Academy sessions are regularly available for undergraduate or graduate credit, are sometimes open to the general public, and have sometimes featured sustained and focused instruction in areas of special concern to area school districts.
