M.A. Curriculum and Instruction Dean

Dr. Wendy Wendover

Dean and Professor of Curriculum and Instruction - School of Education Professions

CCU education students and graduates are prepared to be the light of Christ in all educational settings. In order to be faithful professionals, students receive mentoring and relevant knowledge from a biblical worldview. We challenge both our faculty and our student educators to “bring their best” to those they work with every day.


Meet the Dean of Education Professions

Education is a dynamic and challenging profession.

Teachers, principals, curriculum designers, corporate trainers and instructional coaches know the value of both the art and science involved in intellectual inquiry, evidence-based practice, applied technology, and meeting the needs of all learners entrusted to them. Our goal in the College of Adult and Graduate Studies (CAGS) is to support CAGS students as they develop into highly-qualified educators, trainers and leaders for both public and private schools as well as businesses. Students are encouraged to grow in knowledge, skill, and spiritual formation in every course taken.

All CAGS licensure education programs are performance-based; candidates receive continual feedback on the development of the professional dispositions, behaviors, and skills needed to become an excellent educator and leader as defined by the Colorado Department of Education’s (CDE) Teacher Quality Standards. The programs integrate faith and learning and are approved by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) to prepare graduates for certification to work in ACSI schools.

The rigor of both the undergraduate and graduate education programs is matched with faculty support and mentoring along the way. Students and faculty are lifted up in prayer together.

We are excited to take this journey together.
