BEST  LogoThe Bayh College of Education's BEST (Bayh College of Education Scholars to Teachers) program at Indiana State University is designed to provide a unique educational experience for pre-service teachers. The program recruits students who represent the current demographic of public schools across the state. The BEST program affords future teacher leaders the professional experiences they will need in order to be recognized as educators and leaders who are prepared to take on the ever-changing world of education.

Two themes primarily embedded throughout the program, "Transforming Lives and Communities," and "Inclusive Excellence." BEST scholars will participate in local, state, national and global educational activities and programs throughout their ISU experience, culminating with the requirement of student teaching in a diverse cultural setting either abroad, in one of the Navajo Nation schools, or in a culturally diverse setting in the United States.

The BEST program is designed to help foster the development of future educational leaders who are intentional in their efforts to serve others through their personal and professional lives.
