Consistently ranked among the best public schools of education in the country, the University of Texas College of Education is committed to preparing educators and leaders to join us in responding to pressing challenges in education. We do this within three strategic impact areas: advancing equity and eliminating disparities in education, attending to place and context, and thriving through transitions. We engage in thoughtful interdisciplinary work to prepare students for impactful careers, to bridge innovative research to practice, and to leverage our strengths in service to the state and our communities.
