The Delaware Center for Teacher Education (DCTE) provides support services for students and faculty in these programs across campus. These services are offered in the Office of Certification and AccreditationOffice of Clinical Studies, and the Education Resource Center. DCTE is also the home for two alternative state teacher certification programs (ARTC and DT3P).
