The College of Education remains dedicated to seeking solutions to education’s most pressing challenges through four key areas of impact — Early Learning, Educational Technology, Student Success and Leadership.
The Right Track with Early Learning
We are leading the way to a future where every child is prepared to enter school, giving children the opportunity to succeed through interdisciplinary collaboration.
Connecting Through Technology
We are integrating emerging technologies with proven learning techniques, using shared data, collaboration and learning analytics, to create the learning environments of the future.
Making Strides in Student Success
In areas of literacy, special education, counseling, social justice and beyond we are removing barriers and building bridges to increase opportunities for every learner.
We prepare leaders to analyze, develop and administer complex policies at all levels and to transform education through collaboration.
