The mission of the Bayh College of Education is to prepare, promote, and advance educational and human service professionals for a diverse and ever-changing world. The college holds the belief that its faculty, staff, and students are actively engaged in the process of Becoming a Complete Professional, with three essential elements of work: the educator as an expert or mediator of learning, the educator as a member of community, and the educator as a person. As such, student success, social justice and diversity, caring for others, responsibility, honesty, openness to change, and collegiality are valued by the faculty.

The purpose of the Bayh College of Education is to prepare prospective teachers and a variety of other educational leaders including clinicians, counselors, school administrators, school psychologists, counseling psychologists, instructional supervisors, and university professors to assume a significant role in providing professional development for experienced teachers and practitioners in each of these fields. In addition, the Bayh College of Education contributes to school reform and restructuring, engages in research and scholarship necessary to better understand the complexities of teaching and learning, and provides service to the public.

The Bayh College of Education is the official teacher education agency of the University. The faculty of the Bayh College of Education, in conjunction with content faculty across campus, is responsible for the content, structure, and design of all curricula and field experiences and for preparing professional education personnel for beginning and advanced positions in teaching, administration, counseling, and other human service professions in both school and non-school settings. The range of responsibility of the Bayh College of Education includes pre-service, in-service, and continuing education of those who plan, implement, and evaluate learning environments.

Scholarships to students are available through individual departments and the Dean’s office. Specific information can be obtained from Education Student Services at http://indstate.edu/education/ess and/or each Department Chairperson’s office.

The Teacher Education Program of Indiana State University is accredited by the Indiana Department of Education and by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education. Graduates of Indiana State University who successfully complete teacher licensing programs and the appropriate state-required tests are qualified for teaching licenses in Indiana. Licenses from Indiana qualify the holder for licenses in many other states. For questions regarding specific state licensing requirements, contact the state education authority in that state.

The Bayh College of Education is organized into three units consisting of the Departments of Communication Disorders and Counseling, School, and Educational Psychology; Educational Leadership; and Teaching and Learning. Refer to the departmental listing in this Catalog for information on programs and courses provided by each department. For information beyond that printed in this Catalog, consult with an academic advisor, a staff member of Education Student Services, room 115 University Hall, or with the appropriate department.
