Join us as we Reimagine Education. We are honoring our foundation of strength, staring the future squarely in the eyes, and reorienting the college to better serve the future of Texas. If we can change the system in Texas, we have the chance to make a sustaining impact on the nation and beyond.
Over a six-month period in spring and summer of 2019, our faculty, staff, and students established three Signature Impact Areas, setting our course for years to come. The work that we do is about laying claim to our values and going on record with the goals we will pursue. It’s about creating urgency to do our part to fix a system that too often fails too many kids.
We are enlisting you—and all of our alumni, faculty, students, staff, and friends—in our shared commitment to make a lasting difference for kids, adults, families, schools, and communities.

This year, we launched an initiative to purposefully engage in deep interdisciplinary work in how we prepare students, how we conduct cutting-edge research, and how we leverage our strengths.
Our signature impact areas, Equity, Context, and Transitions, align with our college’s strengths. They represent our major goals, and help to determine how we will align our resources to reach our vision.

The College of Education welcomes faculty starting this fall for the 2019-2020 academic year. Each department is joined by faculty who bring new areas of expertise and interests that will bolster our research, teaching, and leadership.
Thanks to the gift from an anonymous donor, we were able to establish a number of new, student study spaces. These spaces are on the 8th, 9th and 10th floors of Bellmont Hall. Each space is a mix of small group and individual study spaces – all with charging stations. This will have a tremendous impact on the daily life of our students.
We celebrated the opening of these spaces with Dean Charles Martinez at a ribbon cutting on December 9, 2019.
