Unified Elementary ProTeach (UEP)
UEP is a 5-year teacher education program that culminates in a yearlong internship and a masters degree. During the 5th year of UEP, students choose to pursue the single certification (K-6 elementary education) option or the dual certification (K-12 special education and K-6 elementary education) option.
The UEP program is guided by the belief that teachers are responsible for the learning of students who have a broad range of needs and assets. The UEP faculty advocates responsive education in which teachers design environments and use a variety of strategies that include and affirm all students in the community of learners, thereby increasing the likelihood of positive learning outcomes.
