ATTENTION Spring 2020 Teacher Education Admits:
For the protection of our students, faculty and staff the EHS Center for Student Services has made the decision to cancel all remaining Professional Skills Interviews for the Spring 2020 semester, effective March 18, 2020. Given this unique circumstance, your PSI requirement for admission to the program is waived and you will not need to complete an interview.
Please consider joining our virtual Professional Skills in Practice events that are open to all teacher candidates and will highlight various elements of the professional dispositions covered by the interview.
