In addition to being a premier teacher preparation program, the College of Education is characterized by nationally accredited intensive programs that provide knowledge and skills necessary for success in other professional roles in education.

The mission of the MTSU academic advising process is to provide a quality, student-centered environment that promotes intellectual growth. This process is dedicated to fostering a collaborative and mentoring relationship among advisors, students and the university community. Students are encouraged to think logically, critically, and creatively in order to assume ownership of their lifelong educational goals. Advisors guide students through a variety of support services that enable them to make a successful and holistic transition in the MTSU and global community.
