Mission

Our Mission is to ensure that U.S. teachers are properly trained to prepare our young people to cope and thrive in a globally-connected world. By partnering with colleges of education and professional bodies in the education and teacher preparation spaces, GTE supports the internationalization of teacher preparation programs by connecting professionals, as well as advancing and disseminating research and best practices.  

This mission is based on a vision of our nation’s young people being prepared to become truly global citizens – confident in their own culture, yet able to understand and appreciate other cultures with which they will increasingly interact in their personal, social and economic lives.

We welcome you to connect with others who share a passion for internationalizing teacher education by becoming an active participant in the GTE community.
