Northwest Missouri State University


Message from the Dean

Dr. Joyce Piveral, Dean (2010-2016), College of Education and Human Services
Dr. Cheryl Malm, Assistant Director of Teacher Education

Welcome to Northwest Missouri State University. The Northwest Professional Education Unit is pleased to welcome the visiting team members from the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to our campus.

Beginning in 1905 and continuing to the present, Northwest has always been proud of our history, and legacy in preparing outstanding educators to further the work and meet the needs of our P-12 school partners. We value and respect the accreditation process as it provides our unit and program leaders with an opportunity to embrace the continuous improvement cycle.

We look forward to the results of the accreditation visit as this will allow us to focus on suggestions for improvement from the perspective and expertise of our visiting team members.  As always, we will use the results as a way to improve candidate performance and in turn enhance the learning environment in the classrooms of our P-12 stakeholders.

Thank you for this opportunity to interact, collaborate and benefit from your insights and recommendations.
