The College of Education prepares educators at the undergraduate, master’s and doctoral levels. The DePaul student is actively involved in learning, analyzing, discussing, assessing and applying their knowledge and skills in practical settings.
The mission of the College of Education-- the improvement of pre-collegiate education-- is closely aligned with the urban, Catholic and Vincentian mission of DePaul University. Our student body is diverse as are the urban children and youth our students are being prepared to serve. The commitment to multicultural and urban education is further enriched by the Vincentian spirit, especially personalism, that emphasizes the dignity of every person and touches every aspect of the university.
We offer high-quality professional education programs guided by a conceptual framework: The Urban Professional Multicultural Educator. The framework is knowledge-based and serves as the foundation for all College of Education programs. Programs are developed and supported by a carefully chosen array of theorists and research data, as well as experience with best practice in the field.
