Mission Statement

As a Catholic university rooted in the liberal arts, we are a welcoming community of learners challenged by Franciscan values and charism, engaged in a continuous pursuit of knowledge, faith, wisdom, and justice, and ever mindful of a tradition that emphasizes reverence for creation, compassion and peacemaking. We strive for academic excellence in all programs, preparing women and men to contribute to the world through service and leadership. 


This courses examines the methods for teaching the Simulation and Range phase of Driver Education.  The course includes program design, organization, scheduling, and pedagogy.  Candidates must attend a field experience at a school that has simulation and range instruction.  This course also provides the candidate with instruction in teaching Advanced, Evasive, and Emergency Maneuvers.


College of Education Mission

The mission of the College of Education is to prepare competent and caring educators who understand students, serve the community and develop professionally to become ethical decision-makers and leaders.


Candidates will develop and administer a quality Driver Education Simulation and Range Program for students.     


Candidates will equip students with the knowledge, perceptions, attitudes, and motor skills necessary to achieve low-risk driving behaviors that will promote a lifetime of incident-free driving. 


Candidates that complete the driver education simulation and range course will become more marketable in an increasingly competitive education field.


Access to standards referenced in this section can be found HERE
