UNI's College of Education (COE) is known for having some of the most innovative teacher education programs in the country. Year after year, our graduates are hired as teachers, principals and superintendents across the state, nation and around the world.
Students gain real world experiences through hands-on learning both in- and out- of the classroom. These experiences give them the skills and confidence they need to step right into their careers and excel.
COE faculty, staff, students and graduates are committed to educating, serving and leading our communities. Proof of this commitment can be found in COE's impact to the state of Iowa.
Gaëtane Jean-Marie has been named dean of the College of Education and the Richard O. Jacobson Endowed Chair of Leadership in Education at UNI. She will assume her new duties on June 30. Jean-Marie is currently a professor and chair of the Department of Educational Leadership, Evaluation and Organizational Development at the University of Louisville in Kentucky.
In May 1986, the College of Education Senate established a Faculty Awards Program. The program was implemented to recognize excellence in Teaching, Scholarship/Research and Professional Service. In 2008-09 a new award was established: The Dean’s Award for Multicultural Initiatives. Nominations for 2015-16 are due Tuesday, February 16th to BCS 113 by 12:00 p.m.
