Teacher Prep celebrates 50 years of service through teaching

Teacher Prep Anniversary, participants sitting at tables

“Honoring the Past, Preparing the Future: Celebrating 50 Years of Preparing Teachers for the Nation’s Service,” was held on campus April 12 and 13. Throughout the weekend, attendees chatted excitedly, shared hugs and took selfies as they recognized friends and former professors. Alumni ranging from the Class of 2018 to the early ’70s came from across the country — representing 41 of the 50 years of the program. The 150 participants, including current students in the Teacher Prep certificate program, and current and former faculty and staff, enjoyed panels, keynote addresses, roundtable discussions and campus tours — and had plenty of time to socialize. Much of the programming was open to the public.
