Earlier in November, VSU said its College of Education is ranked as one of the top undergraduate programs in the Commonwealth of Virginia for new teachers.
“Virginia State University College of Education is extremely proud of the Teaching & Learning faculty that work tirelessly with candidates preparing them to teach, which led to the “A” in both Clinical Practice and Classroom Management this year,” Dr. Willis Walter, dean of the VSU College of Education, said in a statement. “I believe our emphasis on candidates’ awareness of self, the trauma of others, and culturally-responsive techniques leads VSU teachers to be quality reflective practitioners and advocates for students of various backgrounds.”
In recognition of the economic challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced into families’ lives, the historically Black university in Ettrick, Virginia, also announced it will not increase tuition for the 2020-2021 academic year. Currently, Virginia residents pay $4,577 per semester to attend and $10,349 per semester to reside on campus. The tuition rate will not increase for either in-state and out-of-state students, the statement said.
