The College of Education is pleased to collaborate with the community and P-12 partners to address issues of common interest. Engagement simultaneously serves the needs of COE partners and invigorates the research, teaching, and service mission of the college. The office of engagement is excited to foster partnerships that will build bridges to local, state, national and international communities for mutual benefit. Our engagement is guided by a vision that is both idealistic and pragmatic, with activities intentionally geared to meeting critical needs of society, creating productive dialogue, and sharing expertise in ways consistent with the mission of a public, land grant, research university. Through the scholarship of engagement our faculty are developing diagnostic tools to identify critical societal needs, contributing to social competencies through interdisciplinary relationships, contributing to global awareness, cultural literacy, and social health. The faculty simultaneously fulfill an academic mission and meet community needs. They are committed to launching the future.

We invite you to explore our website to see how the College of Education can work with you to make a difference in our community.
