VU Board of Trustees approves pathway to address teacher shortage


In response to the critical teacher shortage in Indiana, the Vincennes University Board of Trustees approved the implementation of a Certificate of Program Completion in Education.

The program addition aims to expose high school students to various educational pathways and encourage them to pursue careers in teaching.

By offering this certificate program, VU seeks to address the pressing need for qualified educators while providing students with valuable insights into the field of education.

The approval was made at the April 17th Board of Trustees meeting where the board also honored the VU Men’s Basketball team’s appearance in the NJCAA Division I National Championship tournament, Baseball Coach Chris Barney’s 400 career wins, and the three NJCAA indoor national championships won by Men’s and Women’s Track and Field student-athletes this semester.
