Strategic Plan


This is Us. Together.

In the College of Education (COE) at Purdue University, we are forward thinkers committed to rigorous programs and ground-breaking research. We are dedicated to continuous improvement toward inclusive excellence through self-reflective practices. We embed our values into who we are so that inputs, decisions, and results are driven and measured according to our values. Our values guide our ways of being, interacting, and operating in interdisciplinary groups including how we develop local, national, and global partnerships. Our values guide our response to the dynamic nature of our world and to our commitment to attending to the evolving needs of our community.

Message from the Dean

Innovation is central to Purdue University’s persistent pursuit of the next giant leap. The College of Education is committed to pursuing innovation in learning that changes lives one student at a time through collaborative and transformational efforts in discovery, learning, and engagement with the goal of improving educational outcomes for all.

We are committed to making the College of Education an equitable and welcoming environment for all. We are taking steps toward making the College and the campus more tolerant and inclusive, with focus on the recruitment and retention of historically underrepresented students.
