Message from the Dean

At the University of Maryland College of Education, educator preparation is being reimagined. We are dedicated to innovation in curriculum, the development of equity-minded educators, digital learning, and community partnerships that strengthen our ability to prepare effective educators for today’s classrooms. 

The pandemic has heightened the importance of these efforts. The national pivot to remote education has revealed and widened disparities in access to high-quality learning opportunities. Educators’ ability to adapt, address inequities, teach remotely, and work collaboratively has never been more important to student success.
