Addition of new department will offer educational research opportunities

In an effort to ensure success and better define the mission of TU’s educational programs, the School of Urban Education has been split into two departments: the School of Urban Education and the Department of Educational Studies.

The School of Urban Education will prepare teachers for the classroom and will carry the full responsibility of maintaining state accreditation for teacher certification programs.

The Department of Educational Studies will teach classes and conduct research as before, in collaboration with the School of Urban Education, but with greater flexibility for the educational studies faculty to develop collaborative and individual research.

Both divisions will report to the dean of the Henry Kendall College of Arts and Sciences.
