Humboldt State University (HSU) has offered teacher education programs since 1913 when it was founded as a college to prepare teachers. Today HSU is still dedicated to producing quality teachers through an all-university commitment to teacher education.
An African proverb states 'It takes a village to raise a child.' Likewise, the Liberal Studies Elementary Education (LSEE) program at HSU believes it takes a whole university to prepare an elementary school teacher. The all-university program is committed to preparing the strongest possible candidates for teaching careers. Faculty members program consider teacher education a top priority and provide extensive opportunities for future teachers to participate in service learning and field experiences early in their studies.
