MISSION: The program's mission is to develop compassionate, knowledgeable, influential educators who will act and lead with integrity and who are dedicated to fostering student growth, creative expression, critical thinking, and community service. The TPCP strives to extend the University's commitment to preparing prospective teachers by using an interdisciplinary approach designed to help candidates meet the needs of learners from all walks of life and creating teacher-leaders who apply what they learn through our program in the classrooms, schools and communities.
VISION: Transforming education through innovative teacher leaders in a tight integration of these three components in our program (mentored diverse real-world experiences; educational strategies; academic rigor).
As developed by the Advisory Council, the mission of the TPCP program at Tulane University is to produce teachers who:
v Demonstrate a professional commitment as educational leaders;
v Apply a rigorous academic foundation using informed practice, information technology, and the ability to think creatively and reflectively;
v Exemplify sensitivity to all forms of diversity; and
v Lead with integrity such that high levels of achievement can be a reality for all learners.
