Friday, August 11, 2017

The Indiana University Board of Trustees has endorsed a recommendation to separate the IU School of Education into two independent schools of education on the IU Bloomington and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campuses. The move will enable each school to sharpen its focus on historic and emerging areas of strength and more effectively meet the educational needs of Indiana and the nation.

"We are excited to move forward," said Terry Mason, dean of the IU School of Education. "Separating into two independent Schools of Education will enable both campuses to set individual priorities toward excellence. We remain dedicated to our mission of improving teaching and learning in a rapidly changing world and working with the School of Education at IUPUI in the future."
