Department of Urban Education

The Department of Urban Education offers both undergraduate and graduate programs, focusing on schooling in urban environments. Our fundamental premise is that public schools are crucial to the cultivation of creative, productive, and politically involved individuals committed to a just and democratic society. 

The Department is dedicated to the preparation and professional development of future and current teachers, administrators, and scholars who contribute to the improvement of urban education through their teaching, community involvement, leadership, and research.
