For the first time, Purdue University Northwest’s (PNW) School of Education & Counseling (SoEC) made the top 10 ranking of collegiate institutions issuing the most teaching licenses according to the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE), Office of Educator Effectiveness and Licensing.
Coming in seventh out of the 46 institutions in Indiana granting teaching licenses, the recognition acknowledges the work of the PNW faculty, staff, university field supervisors and cooperating teachers who ensure PNW’s graduates in early childhood, elementary, special education and secondary education are well-prepared to be effective educators in Indiana classrooms.
Graduates from all of PNW’s educator preparation programs are eligible for an initial teaching license upon graduation and successfully passing Indiana CORE Assessments for Educator Licensure requirements.
