DARTEP Listserv

The DARTEP Listserv became operational in January 2003. It was established to promote the exchange of ideas and information related to the work of the Directors and Representatives of Teacher Education Programs (DARTEP).

Members of DARTEP are typically deans/directors/chairs of teacher education programs, directors of field placements, certification officers, and Michigan Department of Education Staff from the Office of Professional Preparation Services. Each institution typically supports membership costs for individuals from these groups.

Participation in the DARTEP Listserv is open. The faculty and staff from teacher preparation institutions, regardless of membership status with DARTEP, are welcome to join.

To request to join the Listserv, visit the list info page.

Please send any questions regarding the use of the DARTEP Listserv to any of the DARTEP Officers.
