Teacher Education Committee

The initial Teacher Education Program at the University of Montevallo is governed by the Teacher Education Committee (TEC) – an autonomous body comprised of teacher education faculty, arts and sciences faculty, fine arts faculty, public school personnel and student representatives. The TEC meets four times each year to make decisions regarding curriculum, policies, and procedures that affect all teacher education programs.
