Teacher Education

Preparing Future Teachers Since 1869

The College of Education and Learning Design enjoys a rich heritage of educator preparation and is committed to producing high-quality teachers, administrators, education scholars, and other school and community professionals. As one of Minnesota’s largest teacher education institutions, we’re proud to serve as both a state and national innovator in education. 

At St. Cloud State University, the various programs that prepare students to become teachers are housed in the College of Liberal Arts, College of Science and Engineering, College of Education and Learning Design, and College of Health and Wellness Professions.

Teacher Education unites all St. Cloud State University programs that lead to teacher licensure, regardless of where the programs are housed. Teacher Education provides a common identity for all teacher candidates, as well as a sense of community, connectivity, and cohesiveness among faculty, staff, and students associated with teacher preparation programs.
