Professional Education Programs Governance

Governance of professional education at Arkansas State is determined by the:

  • Standards established by NCATE;
  • Established university structures as defined in the Faculty Handbook;
  • Policies and procedures as established by the Professional Education Unit, including COPE; and
  • Desire to create a community of educators who are responsible to the students, the public and to each other to ensure the quality of future educators and education.

Although governance addresses the structures and processes by which the academic community defines and implements policies and programs, it also provides the structure and processes by which community and collegiality are demonstrated. In this professional community, mutual commitment to quality and sense of shared obligation to the profession and future professionals are evident.
