The standard for teacher preparation
“Simple numbers rarely give the complete picture of success for a University. Student success is one of the hallmarks of a great university, and Illinois State will continue on its path to provide an exceptional experience for our students.” —Timothy J. Flanagan, 18th president of Illinois State University
When evaluating the impact of Illinois State University’s educator preparation program, we cannot rely on numbers alone. We are committed to developing talented educators, meaningful partnerships, and academic excellence. Together with our partners, we will embrace the principles of Realizing the Democratic Ideal and lead the nation in advancing the teaching profession.
