Alumni & Giving

For over 100 years, the IU School of Education has been a leader in preparing the education professionals who shape our children, strengthen our communities, and lead our nation’s great colleges and universities.

Today, the demands on our nation’s education system are greater than ever. As budgets tighten, state support shrinks, and expectations soar, the need for strong, informed, and credible leadership becomes critical to advancing education in the 21st century. As a premier program in both preparing education leaders and providing quality research to frame education policy, we have an obligation to provide this needed leadership.

Equipped with the additional resources only donor and alumni support can provide, our faculty, staff, and students stand ready to accept this challenge. With your continued support, we will advance education in the 21st century and beyond. All we need is you.
