The School of Education offers programs that prepare individuals to lead in a wide array of educational settings, including teaching in K–12 classrooms, conducting educational research, developing evidence-informed policy and designing innovative learning environments both in schools and in community-based settings.

The School of Education offers a range of experiences and programs that prepare undergraduates to lead in a wide array of educational settings, including K-12 classrooms and community-based settings. Whether it is the dream to be a classroom teacher, a community activist or an innovator in research and policy, the School of Education programs are designed for a student's success with field-based experiences, mentorship and community at the core.


Our mission in the School of Education is grounded in a lived commitment to democracy, diversity, equity and justice. We teach and conduct research to make a positive difference with and in schools and communities. The work of our faculty, researchers, staff and students leads to evidence-based policy and practice. We aim for our graduates to be engaged and informed educators, researchers, policymakers and community leaders.


The licensure programs, both undergraduate and graduate, are fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, the Colorado Department of Education and the Colorado Commission on Higher Education.
