School of Education

Welcome to the School of Education! We are a dedicated community of dynamic teacher-scholars who are not only experts in the field, but also passionate and innovative educators creating learning experiences that ensure all students succeed. Our faculty and staff have advised, nurtured, and inspired students for many decades.  We prepare educational leaders and caring practitioners for diverse learning communities with a focus on service, global perspectives, and academic excellence. Our programs are well known for their small class sizes and for the personalized attention students receive from expert faculty. Graduates of our programs gain the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to make a difference in the lives of others, across the nation, and the world.

The School of Education offers nationally accredited programs with undergraduate teacher licensure in elementary education, secondary education, art education, and special education.  At the graduate level, you can earn master’s degrees with licensure in elementary education, secondary education, special education, and administration and supervision.  We also offer a master’s degree in education without licensure and 15-credit certificates in Special Education, Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM), and English as  a Second Language (ESL).  Our online EdD in Educational Leadership and Organizational Innovation program invites you to collaborate in a cohort community of professionals that begins every fall and spring semester.  We encourage you to explore the many degree and non-degree options that we offer in face to face, hybrid, and virtual learning environments.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or if you wish additional information about our programs, resources, or activities.  Join our vibrant community which affords limitless opportunities for both your professional and personal development.  We all look forward to welcoming you to our School of Education!

Join us in making a difference!

Sincerely,

Dr. Lisa Turissini, School Director
