Professional Education Advisory Board


To prepare educators who demonstrate a positive impact on student learning, evidence shall be evaluated to determine whether each preparation program is in compliance with the program approval standards.


The purpose of the PEAB is to participate in and cooperate with the institution on decisions related to the development, implementation, and revision of each program.


  • Adopt operating procedures.
  • Meet at least three times over the course of a year. A quorum of voting members must be present at each meeting.
  • The Professional Education Advisory Board must review all program approval standards at least once every five years.
  • The PEAB annually has reviewed and analyzed data for the purposes of determining whether candidates have a positive impact on student learning and providing the institution with recommendations for programmatic change. This data may include, but not be limited to: Student surveys, follow-up studies, employment placement records, student performance portfolios, course evaluations, and summaries of performance on the pedagogy assessment for teacher candidates.
  • Make recommendations for program changes to the institution, which must in turn consider and respond to the recommendations in writing in a timely fashion.
