Policy Acknowledgement for Candidates
The University of Delaware (UD) professional education faculty and staff and their school-based partners have the responsibility of evaluating the effectiveness of professional education candidates. To be successful, educators must purposefully act in caring, fair, professional, respectful, and responsible ways.
UD’s University Council on Teacher Education (UCTE) created a Professionalism Policy for Professional Education Candidates, identifying eight dispositions that candidates should exhibit to become an effective educator.
Undergraduate and Graduate Students
Candidates are required to acknowledge that they have read and understood the Professional Dispositions of Effective Educators Policy and sign off on the form upon entry into their program. The policies in the form are in effect for their entire time in the program.
Candidates should also be familiar with the expectations in the University of Delaware Student Code of Conduct in addition to the above dispositions.
Candidates will be contacted by email through Qualtrics and are required to read and sign off on the form upon entry to the program. Candidates may sign off on the form before they are contacted by email by using the appropriate link (below.)
