Welcome to the Eriksson College of Education!

There are many exciting things happening in our College. From our renewed partnerships with local schools and the nation's first registered teacher apprenticeship, to the Center for Rural Education, to innovative programs in Special Education and Educational Leadership, we have programs to prepare teachers and leaders at all levels of education. Our Doctorate of Education (Ed.D.) program is growing, with five concentrations and distinguished graduates serving in a variety of leadership positions in both K-12 and higher education settings. The Eriksson College of Education prepares dynamic teachers and educational leaders to positively impact communities and schools in the 21st century. We invite you to be a part of this important work.

I encourage you to explore our website and discover all that the College has to offer.

Whether you are a prospective or current student, a College alumnus, a professional colleague, or a community member, we welcome your inquiries and feedback.
