Teacher Education Committee (TEC)

The Teacher Education Committee - consisting of faculty members from various areas of the College - is the policy setting entity for our Educator Preparation Program (EPP) housed within the Education Department of Hanover College. TEC is the "gatekeeper" for entry (Decision Point One) and as such evaluates, interviews, and admits students into the Education program. TEC also monitors that our students maintain the standards set for proceeding through the Program as well as displaying conduct that reflects the high standard for Hanover College certified teachers. TEC Guidelines and Policies can be viewed here.
