About the College
This is an exciting time for Rowan University and the College of Education. The College has a new tagline, Access, Success, and Equity…Turning Research into Practice. This tagline represents our renewed commitment to research, innovation, and community engagement. With approximately 3,000 students preparing to be education professionals, we are poised to transform the P-20 landscape. The College is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and is committed to continuous improvement. The College has four academic departments, which are aligned to our vision and mission. Please be sure to visit the department websites to learn more about our programs and faculty. We are proud to have a thriving Professional Development Schools (PDS) Network. Each school in the network has a Professor-in-Residence who coordinates professional development activities and the supervision of educator preparation candidates engaged in field and clinical experiences. Finally, required courses are offered at each PDS at least once a year. The PDS Network results in shared ownership for learner outcomes. We believe our work serves as a model for our state and region.
Recently, the College launched the Center for Access, Success, and Equity (CASE). CASE has three primary foci: research, professional services, and policy engagement. The PhD in Education with specialization areas in literacy education, counselor education, special education, and higher education is housed within CASE along with grant funded research and service projects. Professional services are provided in the areas of program evaluation and professional development. CASE is a multidisciplinary effort, which draws upon the experience and expertise of faculty and graduate students from across the college. The College of Education is proud of our roots as Glassboro Normal School and our evolution to a regional leader in knowledge production, implementation of evidence-based practices, and commitment to community service.
Each of the College's programs are described in detail on this web site.
