Message from the dean

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.

Our program is vibrant and ever-changing. Our professors stay current and relevant, sharing information they embed into their daily practices and instruction.

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.

Learn more about the Ross College of Education, where our students walk out with a degree and into jobs they’ve been dreaming about their whole lives.
