We are thrilled you are interested in joining our warm and welcoming community.

Kathy SchultzHere in the CU Boulder School of Education, you’ll find our deep commitments to diversity, democracy, equity, and justice reflected in all that we do — our courses, mission, research activities, and partnerships with local schools and communities. While we live in complex times, we are inspired now more than ever to prepare teachers, scholars, and community leaders with the knowledge and dedication they need to address today’s challenges faced by our students, families and community members.

Whether your dream is to be a teacher in a local public school, a researcher working on policy issues, a community advocate for a non-profit, an education professor, or something we haven’t yet imagined, we can help you to accomplish your goals! We offer cutting-edge teacher preparation pathways, innovative undergraduate offerings, and Colorado’s top-ranked graduate education programs.

We are a community of active and accomplished faculty who are nationally recognized for our contributions to research, theory, policy, and practice. As researchers and mentors, we collaborate with our partners and students to link critical research questions to community-based issues, drawing on diverse disciplines, using a range of methodologies, and establishing partnerships with our local communities. We are also a community of diverse and engaged students and alumni who are truly changing lives through teaching, research, and policy. Our supporters are some of our biggest advocates in advancing our mission. Together, we aim to transform education and our communities.

I invite you to explore our website to get a better understanding of our exciting work and gain a sense of how you would thrive in our community. Work in education today requires passion, knowledge, and varied experiences, all of which you will find here at CU Boulder. We hope you will join us in this vital work.
