The Donald E. and Helen L. Ross College of Education merges theory and practice, giving individualized attention to our students at all levels—bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral—to ensure they have the skills necessary to be successful.

We’re small by design and customize our instruction so that every student gets his or her own educational plan.

Once our students graduate, they hit the ground running because they can immediately put into practice everything they’ve learned, whether they’re leading an organization or teaching in a classroom.
