I do not believe that the institution has (yet) any institutional goals relative to physics teacher graduates. It has taken several steps recently which indicate that improvements in STEM education(which certainly includes physics) are high on their list. The university has a school of education and their requirements for secondary education teacher certification include earning a dual degree in both education and the subject matter specializtion. We have had several such students in the past in physics (~1 every 1-2 years) and would like to increase that number to 1-2 each year. We would like to utilize the information available through PhysTEC to improve the education and throughput of students who expect to teach in high school.
