Dean's Welcome

Welcome to one of the top ranked universities in the world.  The College of Education (CEDU) is fast becoming one of the top educational schools in the region with a focus on preparing graduates to become exceptional leaders, teachers, innovative thinkers and problem solvers for the challenging educational and social problems facing the world.

We desire to improve the human condition for children of all ages; for adults in the workplace and in the community; for families; and especially in the educational enterprise for   teachers, leaders, and other human service professionals.

The College of Education consists of four academic units: Curriculum and Instruction, Foundations of Education, Special Education, and the Department of Physical Education. Through these academic units CEDU prepares students for exciting careers in teaching and leadership in education and other social/human service agencies.

Our curriculum places a strong emphasis on student centered learning; understanding educational research and the transformation of research to effective and successful educational practices.  Our goal is to prepare students with the desire, knowledge, and skills to develop and implement innovative strategies to improve the world through the educational enterprise-through teaching, research, policy analysis, and community service.

I encourage you to explore our website and visit our faculty and staff in the CEDU.
