Historical Note:

The College of Education was established in 1942. During WWII, the college had a vital wartime assignment recruiting and retraining teachers to take the places of the hundreds who left the profession for high-paying jobs in the war industry or for the armed services. Former teachers, particularly women, were urged to seek recertification, primarily through a unique Education Workshop. [1] In 1945, the School of Education was expanded to offer the degree of Doctor in Education. [2]

Farish Hall, dedicated in 1975, is the current location of the College of Education. A large endowment from Mrs. Stephen Power Farish was given to name the College of Education Building for her husband, a former UH regent. [3]

he College of Education works to shape and staff educational systems that are responsive to our rapidly changing society. The college prepares teachers, counselors, psychologists, school and higher education administrators and professionals for a variety of educational settings, including work in social agencies, medical facilities, businesses, and government posts. The college offers students both a broad range of innovative programs and the opportunity to learn about recent developments in educational practice and thought. The university's urban setting also offers students the opportunity to work with learners in a variety of settings.

The College of Education is home to four academic departments - Curriculum and Instruction, Educational Leadership and Cultural Studies, Educational Psychology, and Health and Human Performance - and several centers and institutes.
