Welcome to the University of Idaho’s College of Education. We consider education of the whole person to be vitally important to our lives and those of future generations. Idaho’s and the nation’s commitments to a high quality education for every child and youth and to continuous lifelong education for each adult are vital to our economic wellbeing, social health, and political stability. University of Idaho’s College of Education proudly offers research-based programs in three general areas. The Department of Curriculum and Instruction
prepares new teachers and provides professional development and advanced degrees for educators. The Department of Leadership and Counseling
prepares principals, superintendents, educational leaders, and rehabilitation/community counselors. Our Department of Movement Science
provides degrees in Athletic Training, Recreation, Dance, Physical Education and Exercise Science and Health. We have faculty and programs in Moscow, Idaho Falls, Coeur d’Alene and Boise, and offer many courses and programs online
We are thrilled to announce that we are under going a major renovation of the Education building on the Moscow campus. Asbestos was a common material used when the building was built in 1969 — making maintenance or upgrades prohibitively expensive. The building is now empty, and employees and programs have relocated to temporary sites
for two years. In 2016, we will return to a beautifully renovated state-of-the-art building that puts students first and models learning technologies throughout.
I encourage you to explore our undergraduate
programs – they are staffed by nationally recognized experts who not only contribute to their fields’ knowledge creation but also care deeply about each of their student's educational experiences at the University of Idaho. We are fortunate to be large enough to have the program choices and options to meet students’ needs, yet small enough to be able to know each of our students. We are justifiably proud of our graduates: Highly skilled UI alumni — teachers, counselors, principals, superintendents, health and exercise professionals, athletic trainers, recreation specialists and dancers — contribute daily to high quality education and healthy living in Idaho and all over the world.
Please come to visit us on one of our campuses, provide us with feedback on our work, and find out how you can become involved in the essential work of educating future generations. Together, we can make a difference.
