For students interested in all levels of teaching, from Pre-K through high school.  Transfer students welcome. 

What you’ll experience

More Than You Expect

Made to Teach 2021 is more than a visit day. It’s a chance to get a sense of what it means to teach. The subjects you’ll explore. The faculty you’ll learn from. How you can translate your passion to engage, to share a favorite subject, to teach others. And the path you’ll take to achieve your dream of becoming a teacher.

Teaching is both a passion and a profession – with lots of options. Explore your possibilities with UNI Teacher Education at Made to Teach 2021.
