In the College of Education, we prepare the next generation of teachers, athletic trainers, college professors, counselors, technology specialists, exercise scientists, principals, researchers, school business managers, superintendents and more.

 

We strive to give our students the best experience and preparation possible, and that’s where you can make a difference. We encourage you to donate to one of the following areas that align with our commitment to high-quality teaching, rigorous research and engaged service as we prepare students to lead in their chosen professions.

 

Student Scholarship Gift

Our recruitment and retention scholarships help us attract and retain the best and brightest students, regardless of their financial situations. Your gift could also assist students in buying textbooks, paying for exam fees and funding travel for internships or student-teaching.

 

Engaged Learning Opportunities Gift

Our “Educate and Engage” series enables students to learn and teach in our service region, in different states like Texas, Colorado, Indiana and North Dakota, and even across the globe in Taiwan, Sri Lanka and Finland. We’re proud to offer students experiences to apply what they learn in diverse, real-world settings at little or no cost through donor support.

 

College Strategic Priorities Gift

When you support our college’s strategic priorities, you allow us to fund important initiatives, including: development of new and innovative curriculum; maintenance and updating of our technology and facilities; and travel for our faculty, staff and students to participate in, and share, research with colleagues.

 

Department Gift

Perhaps your fondest memories of the College of Education are of a certain class or faculty and staff in your program area. If you would like to give to a specific department gift instead of making a college-wide gift, we’d certainly appreciate that as well. Make sure you check out our matching gifts as well to help your gift have an even broader impact.
