This is a very exciting year for us as a College – this academic year marks our centennial anniversary. For 100 years, our College of Education has improved the lives of individuals and the health of communities throughout the state, across the country, and around the world through the power of education. We are planning a number of celebratory events that will bring together faculty, staff, students, alumni, community members, and state leaders to celebrate the achievements and contributions of our college.
