Judith Herb College of Education

2022-2023 Graduate Catalog


The mission of the Judith Herb College of Education is to prepare educators, instructional leaders, and scholars who are capable of constructing and sustaining effective learning environments through the development and practice of innovative educational theories and pedagogical approaches.

Vision: Shaping the future of education for an ever-changing world.

Our graduates go on to serve as leaders in a variety of fields, both academic and professional. While our students and alumni may appear to have diverse interests, they have one thing in common – they are deeply committed to serving others and to making their communities, their state, their nation, and their world a better place. Our faculty has much to offer and they are committed to supporting our students and the larger community.


The Judith Herb College of Education is fully accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). This accreditation status is effective between fall 2016 and fall of 2023. The next on-site visit will take place in spring 2023.
