The Professional Education Unit at Governors State University consists of all programs which prepare candidates for licensure as teachers or other school personnel. Although these programs are located primarily in the College of Education, there are five programs located in other colleges throughout the university (i.e., secondary Biology, Chemistry, English, and Mathematics programs in the College of Arts and Sciences; and the Master’s level program in Communication Disorders, located in the College of Health Professions). The head of the Professional Education Unit is the Dean of the College of Education.
