Dean's Welcome

The UA College of Education stands between the world of research and scholarship and the world of professional practice. We bring strong theoretical foundations and research methods to the study and improvement of education. And we work with our colleagues in professional education settings in preK-12 and higher education to ground our work in the real settings in which our knowledge is used. We take the challenges that confront our nation’s education systems as our challenges.

Through our research, instruction, and outreach, we are engaged in programs to generate new knowledge about education, teach the next generation of educators and leaders, and engage educational and community groups in improvement. We partner with colleagues across campus, in the education and business sectors, and government and nonprofit agencies to leverage resources to make a difference.
