Welcome to the College of Education at Eastern Michigan University! As one of the nation's premier colleges of education, we have been accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) since 1954 and rated "Exemplary" by the State of Michigan for as long as state ratings have existed. We are a community of teachers and learners and together we strive to support schools and other learning communities throughout Michigan and across the nation. This has been our mission and our pursuit since 1849, when we were first founded. The preparation and development of educational professionals is our history, our present, and our future. We are proud of our accomplishments, our faculty, our staff, and most of all our students and alumni.

This website is a starting place for communication with us and a repository of information for educators at all stages of preparation and development. These resources can be a starting place for your journey if you are a prospective student; a resource if you are a current student, staff or faculty member; and a continuing point of contact for remaining part of our community if you are an alumna or visitor.

The COE at EMU has excellent programs in over thirty nationally recognized areas of teaching and learning. In nearly every area of teaching, special education, leadership, and counseling we offer a breadth of programs from entry into the field to development opportunities for experienced professionals. Thousands of Michigan's finest teachers, special educators, counselors, and school administrators have graduated from our program. We are proud to have a strong influence on education not just in Michigan but throughout the nation.

If you have any questions please contact us or visit our offices in the John W. Porter Building. We look forward to seeing you!
