Keep up with all the news, events, people and emerging research at UIC’s College of Education.
Our students don’t apply to our college simply to earn a degree – they come because they share our commitment to make good on the promise of public education. Whether you want to become a teacher, a principal, a researcher, a policy maker, or youth advocate, we have a program that will prepare you to make a difference in schools and communities that have been chronically underserved.
Located in the heart of Chicago, one of the world’s most vibrant, diverse and exciting cities, UIC’s College of Education is one of top suppliers of teachers and school leaders for the Chicago Public School (CPS) system and one of the most affordable higher-education options available. The College has again been named as one of the top graduate schools of education by U.S. News & World Report, and is considered one of the top education-research institutions in the country.
What sets UIC apart from other colleges of education is our unwavering commitment to urban, public schools and to African-American and Latino students in particular.
We offer our students a world-class education, award-winning faculty and real-life, hands-on experience working with students in Chicago's diverse neighborhoods.
