Education Faculty Research

 

The University of Oregon College of Education is a network of inclusive learning communities. Undergraduate, graduate students, and continuing professionals study with nationally recognized faculty to become:

  • teachers
  • administrators
  • clinicians
  • social service professionals
  • educational research scientists

Our research faculty and graduate students also work together with school districts and agency partners to meet the needs of children and families nationwide. These partnerships give our students access to the diverse array of the best practices in education and human services, from a range of academic programs, from the research of nationally renowned faculty, and from our practicing professional partners in the field.

In addition to our academic programs, the UO College of Education includes an alliance of nationally prominent centers, institutes, and affiliated research and outreach units working to fulfill our mission: Making Educational and Social Systems Work for All.
