The Educator Preparation Coordinating Council is the policy-making body for the Iowa State University Educator Preparation Program. The EPCC consists of faculty coordinators representing each undergraduate and graduate licensure area. EPCC has two subcommittees: Selection and Retention Subcommittee and Assessment Subcommittee. An External Advisory Committee, representative of the major stakeholders of the ISU program, will act in concert with the EPCC to raise issues and address strategies for resolution. The EPCC will meet approximately once each month during the academic year.
