College of Education

Give now

The College of Education exists to promote the growth, education and development of all individuals. As our students engage in high-quality research, learning and outreach, they are being shaped into change-agents – individuals who help learners of all ages grow and stretch to reach their fullest potential. Student by student, person by person, we build communities of success – with higher paying jobs, better overall health, less crime, and a deeper appreciation for diversity. We ask you to support – our college, our students, our schools, and our communities – as we work together to transform education and the lives of the learners in our reach.
