The Professional Education Unit (the "Unit") at West Chester University includes all programs culminating in a teacher education degree and/or Pennsylvania teacher certification.

The teacher education programs are guided by an integrated set of overarching principles and values. These principles and values are incorporated into the WCU Conceptual Framework.

The Unit is proud to be accredited, recognized, and approved by national and regional accrediting bodies, professional organizations, and the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE). This level of recognition is clear evidence of the Unit’s ability to prepare candidates with the knowledge, skills, and professional dispositions they will need to be successful and effective educators.

A critical element of any accreditation or program recognition process is assessment. The Unit maintains a sophisticated assessment system that allows us to measure the performance of candidates and the effectiveness of the Unit’s operations.
