Greetings from the Director
Welcome to the Graduate School of Education website. The GSE includes the departments of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, Educational Psychology and Counseling, Theory and Practice in Teacher Education, and the Early Childhood Education Program within Child and Family Studies. We have several new initiatives in development that will be showcased on this website soon. In the meantime, I encourage you to link to the departmental websites to learn more about the faculty, programs, and initiatives under way in each of these units.
