School of Education

The KU School of Education has a great deal to be proud of as we enter our 109th year. We continue to be recognized as a top-10 public school of education in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report. Specifically, our special education program continues to be ranked #1 public along with our curriculum and instruction program at #12 overall. Recently, we have added new study abroad programs, hosted online teaching training camps for online instructors, and enhanced our online “Jayhawkville” virtual school to help online graduate students gain hands-on experience for their careers as educators and professionals. We continue to improve our degree programs ranging from minors, bachelors and master’s degrees to graduate certificates and doctorates, and invest in more options for our students to obtain their degree at both the Lawrence and Edwards campuses.

We are grateful for the support of all our alumni and friends to help advance our mission of educating future leaders, building healthy communities and making discoveries that will serve our state and the world. On this special day of giving, we are asking for support for the School of Education Greatest Need Fund and School of Education Scholarships to support our undergraduate and graduate students. As many of our students can attest, scholarships are crucial for attending KU. The benefit of unrestricted funds allows us to continue improving our facilities and investing in student and faculty development opportunities.

Every gift helps a future educator along their path to inspiring the next generation. Thank you!
