Cowan Teacher™ is the foundational rank of certification for teachers and administrators to help reassert the primacy of the teacher as the essential mode of every educator.

Additional Cowan Center™ certifications for teachers and administrators are designed to cultivate the sensibilities and skills in both teaching and leading, but the “spirit of liberal learning” that the Cowans championed for both teachers and administrators begins with the heart and mind of the teacher.

• Successful completion of the Cowan Center™ Sue Rose Summer Institute for Teachers: The Epic Tradition, Tragedy and Comedy, and Lyric I & II
• Successful completion of the course, Beyond Measure: The Cowan Philosophy of Education
