Both organizations strive to provide students preparing for the education profession with the philosophical and mechanistic skill sets necessary to succeed in and excel in the profession of education.  Additionally this co-operative program strives to prepare each student for the rigors of the profession and instill within each student the ethics required to be an exceptional educator.

The educational skill sets are instilled in each education student through course work in three areas of achievement.  These are: the general education requirement, the professional educational courses, and the required social science courses.
