Definition of Professional Education Unit Members at Missouri State
The Professional Education Unit (PEU) at Missouri State University is made up of all faculty members throughout the University who teach, advise or supervise students at both the initial and advanced levels of professional education. The Professional Education Unit also includes academic administrators and professional staff who provide services for professional education programs and their students.
According to the Constitution and Bylaws of the Faculty (revised May 2010),
Faculty/staff who ...
teach one or more PEU courses (see current list of PEU courses),
advise professional education students,
supervise professional education student activities (e.g. field experiences), or
administer professional education departments/schools or colleges
must be members of the PEU.
The Professional Education Committee (PEC) is the representative body to the Faculty Senate that defines professional education policies and procedures that ensure quality professional education programs at this institution. A PEC member who represents the faculty must be a member of the PEU.
Applying for Membership in PEU
The state expects professional education personnel (defined above as belonging
to the Professional Education Unit) to be knowledgeable about current issues
relevant to schools. So they require (Missouri Statute 168.400.3, RSMO) professional
education personnel to have "periodic, direct personal involvement
in the public schools." Therefore, to become a member of the Professional
Education Unit (PEU), professional education faculty, staff and administrators
need to complete and submit an application and a five-year plan.
When the application and 5-year plan have been received by the PEC office (mail to Hill Hall 402), the PEC Membership and Professional Development Committee will review the file and either ask for additional information or make its recommendation for a vote at the next available PEC meeting.
