TPTE seeks to develop innovative, research-based programs for teachers, teacher educators, and educational interpreters; to work in close harmony with schools and educators across the university, in the region, state, and nation for the improvement of education and interpreting; to develop leadership in scholarly research and writing; and to participate and assume leadership in professional organizations. The department holds to the conviction that questions of personal and organizational integrity can never be separated from questions of quality and effectiveness.
