Professional Education Policies

Page Content

The Professional Education Unit at The University of Southern Mississippi includes professional education faculty, academic programs, and administrative offices associated with professional education. Licensure programs are housed in the College of Education and Human Sciences and the College of Arts and Sciences.

The Professional Education Council (PEC) is the official governance body for the Unit. The Unit head, the Dean of CoEHS, has the responsibility and authority to provide direction and leadership to the PEC. The purpose of PEC is to ensure that professional education programs are quality programs that comply with the standards of the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE). Membership on the PEC includes faculty representatives from each department housing educator preparation programs, representative from Educational Field Experiences (EFE), and members of the CoEHS Dean’s Office administrative staff. The PEC recommends actions regarding the development, administration, evaluation, and revision of educator preparation courses and programs.

All policies of The University of Southern Mississippi's Professional Education Unit can be found below. PEC is responsible for developing and revising Unit policies and procedures to reflect changes in University requirements, accreditation standards, and applicable federal, state, and authoritative sources. In the event of a conflict between another Unit-created document (paper or electronic) and the updated policies and procedures, the policies and procedures listed on this website will prevail.
