Organizational History

The Division of Education became the School of Education in 1967. The New Nursery School Project opened on October 12, 1964 and closed at the end of the 1971/1972 academic year. It was located at 1203 4th Street.

In 2004-2005 the College of Education began its reorganization into five academic schools: Applied Psychology and Counselor Education, Psychological Sciences, Research, Leadership, and Technology, Special Education, and Teacher Education. All of these units provided academic programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. At the undergraduate level the College offered degree programs in psychology and special education. The School of Teacher Education worked with academic programs in other Colleges to prepare teacher candidates for licensure. Through programs administered at the graduate level, the College prepared the education professionals (e.g., teachers, school psychologists, principals, school counselors), researchers, and academics of the future.
