    A community of learners improving our world

    Welcome to the Professional Education Unit faculty. We are very happy to have you join our educator preparation program. Whether you are brand new to the world of higher education and this is your first university teaching position or you have been teaching at the higher ed level for years, we are pleased you selected WSU to teach in the challenges facing educator preparation. We look forward to your ideas, perspectives, and unique views in educator preparation. We are equally delighted to share what we have and are learning in the Professional Education Unit as we engage in further development of our educator candidates and the success they will display in preparing birth through grade 12 students.


  • { Faculty Reference GuideThe purpose of this faculty reference guide is to provide new teaching faculty with information, resources, and university and local community connections that will support new faculty as they prepare new educators for the education profession. New faculty brings unique ideas, perspectives, and opportunities for current university faculty to consider, discuss, and apply to the educator preparation program. Likewise, it provides current professional education faculty the opportunity to facilitate the induction of new faculty members into the WSU university community. This reciprocal relationship with new and current educator preparation faculty strengthens the core of the professional education unit and results in further enhancement of excellent WSU new educators entering the education profession.

    To facilitate the delivery of this information, the faculty reference guide is constructed with the following four major areas of resources: Professional Education Unit Programs and Procedures, Campus Academic Policies and Procedures, Teaching and Learning Support, and Campus Logistics and Related Resources. In each of these areas, major pieces of information are identified with a brief narrative followed by an online link. Embedded in each of the links is specific information which will address multiple details of the area covered.

    If a new faculty member requires additional information about a specific area, the new faculty member is encouraged to discuss this need with their respective program/department colleagues as well as the departments/programs administrative assistant. This resource knows everything about the unit, the college, and the university!


  • { WSU as a Place for a Community of LearnersAs a new faculty person, the concept of place is important. Where is.this? What isthat? How do I getthere? I need to know aboutthis and that. How can I find answers to these important questions?

    To engage in a primary resource that offers multiple places of information access, a good starting point is WSUs Undergraduate Catalog. Policies, procedure, detailed information about each professional education unit program, courses offered, prerequisites, faculty and related contact information, etc. are located in this place. Go to the following link to access this information:

    { Graduate Studies Program

    The Office of Graduate Studies welcomes you to the website for Winona State Universitys more than thirty graduate programs leading to the Masters, Specialist, and Doctorate degrees as well as licensure and certificate programs. The achievements of our graduates prove the tremendous value of these high quality programs in helping them to succeed. We hope that youll choose to join us.

    Lastly, the concept of place is clearly geographical as well. Included within the WSU undergraduate catalog are maps for the WSU and Rochester Campuses. WSUs educator preparation program is part of the Rochester Community and Technological College housed in the University Center Rochester location. WSU students on the Rochester campus take courses from WSU faculty via ITV and face-to-face formats. Rochesters WSU Program:

  • { Welcome to the Professional Education Unit

    Dean Hank Rubin, College of Education, is the university administrator responsible for the Professional Education Unit. When you click on the link below, it will connect you to Dr. Rubins welcome message as well as connect you to the College of Education.

    The College of Education departments are listed on this site as well as the colleges vision, mission, and conceptual framework statement.

    Additionally, there is a History of the College connected to the College of Education as well.


    The Professional Education Unit includes programs from every college on the WSU campus. The link above provides a listing of all Teacher Education Programs, Minors and Endorsements. Information regarding admission to the professional education sequence, teacher licensure exams, and clinical practice (including both field experiences and student teaching) may be found from links on this page.


  • { Admission to the Professional Education ProgramAdmission to the Professional Education Program, the core set of education classes a student takes as well as student teaching, is competitive. Minimum requirements include:

    completing a minimum of 30 credits, taking the Minnesota Teacher Licensure Examinations (MTLE) basic skills tests in reading, writing, and mathematics, achieving a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.75, achieving a minimum grade of B in both English 111 and Communication Studies 191 and a minimum grade of C in Math, passing the WSU Writing Proficiency Exam (this requirement will be replaced with passing the Basic Skills MTLEs in Fall of 2012), and attending the admissions meeting (the writing proficiency is given at this meeting) that occurs the 3rd Wednesday of the semester.

    Higher cumulative grade points, higher grades in English, Communication Studies, and Math, as well as taking a higher level Math course than the required Math 100, all provide additional points in the scoring rubric used to determine who will be accepted into the seats available.

    In advising students not yet accepted into the Professional Education Program, it is important to emphasize taking the English, Communication Studies, and Math general education requirements as soon as possible in their program. It is also important to encourage students to take a higher-level math course than Math 100. The higher level math course will help them pass the MTLE exam in math (a new requirement for admission in Fall of 2012 will be to pass all three basic skill exams) as well as provide a stronger admissions score.

    The following websites (links may also be found from the Program Admission link off of the main Teacher Education Program page given above) should be checked every semester for potential changes in requirements and important dates:
