College Overview

Through the development of outstanding professional educators and scholar leaders, and the advancement of innovative research and practice, NC State’s College of Education is dedicated to increasing opportunities for success in education and reducing achievement gaps for all North Carolinians.

Our Priorities

Extraordinary Opportunity

Student success drives our mission and vision. We give students the opportunity to learn by doing — an experience that equips them for leadership in the 21st-century classroom. Scholarships and fellowships provide students with access to a personalized education — with minimal debt — helping to attract the best and brightest educators to our university and state.

Extraordinary Purpose

Our faculty work with scholars across the academic spectrum on research that shapes the way students learn, from the elementary school classroom to the university lecture hall. Our students put that research to work every day as student teachers in North Carolina schools. To continue progress toward solutions for the grand challenges facing education today, we must be able to recruit and reward high-performing faculty.

Extraordinary Experiences

Gifts to the Dean’s Innovation Fund allow the College of Education leadership flexibility to pursue initiatives that directly support the student experience at all levels. Mentoring and coaching, professional development, community outreach and service learning all combine to provide our students unique opportunities and perspectives as they prepare for meaningful careers in education.
