The Teacher Education Council (TEC) is the equivalent of a college curriculum commit¬teefor all professional teacher education degrees and endorsement programs at KSU. The TEC isa standing university-wide governance committee, established to represent the entire Professional Teacher Education Unit (PTEU) in curricular and policy matters affecting these programs. Recommendations are forwarded to the UPCC or GPCC as appropriate. The PTEU includes any faculty member at KSU who identifi es with or wants to contribute to teacher preparation and formally joins one or more of the professional teacher education program groups (e.g., elementary, middle grades, secondary, P-12).
