Education: Center for Teacher Excellence

Lakeland University's Center for Teacher Excellence

The Center for Teacher Excellence at Lakeland University houses all of Lakeland University's undergraduate and graduate Education programs. 

The goal is to explore new innovations in education at the undergraduate and graduate levels in order to assist school districts and technical colleges in developing effective strategies and/or programs for educator professional development and student success.

If you have questions about any of the programs or other education-related questions, please feel free to contact Dr. John C. Yang, Professor of Education and Director of the Center for Teacher Excellence.


Undergraduate Education Programs

Upon completion of an undergraduate Education program, it will lead to an endorsement for a teaching license from the state of Wisconsin. For more information about each program, please click the link(s) below. 

Lakeland also offers a K-9 Program through our William R. Kellett School. This program is ideal for students who have completed the Foundations of Teacher Education Program or the Early Childhood Education Program through one of the technical colleges in the Wisconsin Technical College System. Students who have completed this program are eligible for one tuition-free course and a minimum of 10% tuition discount.
