From the Dean

Welcome from the Dean


The School of Education has a diverse and vibrant community that is dedicated to intellectual discovery, to making knowledge matter in the world, and to helping students reach their highest potential. We continue to be a visionary School of Education that is at the forefront of developing professionals who enhance their communities and change the world. We are strong in our mission which “is to improve teaching, learning, and human development in a global, diverse, rapidly changing, and increasingly technological society.”

The School of Education provides exciting educational opportunities for students from all backgrounds and locations. We offer different major courses of study that prepare students for success on their journey in life. The faculty are dedicated professionals who excel in connecting with students and providing educational experience equal to that of any university. At IU, students not only get the latest research and pedagogy in the classroom but also have many opportunities for real world application while still a student.

As we go boldly through the academic year, be mindful of one of our most cherished value as the School of Education:

You are welcome here.

We want you to know we embrace the contributions and inherent worth of ALL individuals.

We expect that all members of our community treat each other with mutual respect and understanding regardless of real or perceived background, political affiliation, the role you play in the school, race, ethnicity, religion, physical abilities, nationality, origins, veteran status, socio-economic status, gender, sexuality, and/ or identity.

Thank you for being a part of our community.

Come visit us and see the excitement!
