Engagement is an essential component of the work of the College of Education, both within local and global contexts. Strategic and collaborative partnerships with school corporations, businesses, community organizations, higher education, and government are central to addressing the persistent challenges for K-12 and teacher education and developing the innovations of tomorrow.

Our international engagement continues to expand, as many students participate in study abroad in countries such as: England, Germany, Honduras, Ireland, Russia, and Tanzania. Our signature student programs, including the Gifted Education Resource Institute (GERI) Super Summer Programs and the Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Fellows Summer Institute, continue to grow in prominence. 

Through engagement the College of Education maintains reciprocal and meaningful relationships with the K-12 community and beyond to ensure Purdue graduates are well prepared and existing educators in our local and global community have access to best-practice resources and learning opportunities.
