Be part of Tulane's commitment to a better future!

The mission of the Teacher Preparation and Certification Program (TPCP) at Tulane University is to produce teachers who:

  • Demonstrate a professional commitment as educational leaders;
  • Apply a rigorous academic foundation using informed practice, information technology, and the ability to think creatively and reflectively;
  • Exemplify sensitivity to all forms of diversity; and
  • Lead with integrity such that high levels of achievement can be a reality for all learners.

This mission statement forms the basis for the core principles of the Tulane TPCP model, and led to the development of five core assessable outcomes. These measurable outcomes  are  used  to  create and revise curriculum,  to  develop  and continually revise an   assessment for improvement  plan,  and  to  guide continuing strategic planning for the program.


Whether you are a changer... or a Tulane undergraduate, TPCP has an option for you!
