The OBU Teacher Education Council is a representative group of faculty from departments which prepare candidates to be professional educators who are licensed to teach. The committee members are invited by the Dean of Education in collaboration with other deans.
The Teacher Education Council comprises representatives from all licensure areas. This body approves applicants for admission to teacher education, admission to the Professional Semester (Internship), assists with Portfolio Interviews and is an integral part of decision-making for the Teacher Education Program.
