Welcome to the IU School of Education in Indianapolis.
This is an exciting time of tremendous potential and innovation for the School of Education. As a newly independent school, we are committed to becoming the premier urban-focused School of Education in the state of Indiana and a national exemplar.
Our students are the next generation of education practitioners, leaders, and researchers full of potential and intellect. As a top producer of teachers in the state, we play an important role in improving overall schooling outcomes for youth. All of our programs demonstrate our commitment to social justice and ensuring access to high-quality schooling experiences and academic outcomes for youth. Our programs focus on the power and potential of educational experiences in urban environments and how education professionals can impact change. An urban education focus is an advantage for our students as it prepares education professionals for effective practices with diverse learners in various contexts. I invite you to explore our growing portfolio of degree programs, minors, licensure additions, certificates, and courses.
Our remarkable, award-winning faculty are recognized scholars in their respective fields and outstanding instructors and mentors. Faculty work closely with school and community partners to provide context-specific experiential learning opportunities that better prepare students for the profession.
We welcome partnerships with those who support our mission. Our community-engagement is focused on the betterment of communities by disrupting institutional inequities and increasing access to educational opportunity and success.
We are proud of the work our alumni are involved in on behalf of children, and we welcome the opportunity to engage alumni as partners in moving the profession forward.
The reach of our impact rests on our students, faculty, community partners and alumni acknowledging their role as change agents and activists. I am grateful for the opportunity to lead an amazing school at such an amazing time.
