About UIC College of Education

The College of Education is a community of faculty, staff, students and alumni who are determined to improve educational and life outcomes and interrupt social and economic disparities in schools and communities. The College has worked for more than three decades to prepare teachers, principals, researchers, activists, and policymakers whose work focuses on positively impacting lives and forming healthy partnerships to counter indignities closely associated with poverty and race.  

Our faculty, staff, students, and alumni numbering more than 10,000 advocate on behalf of children, particularly African American and Latino children, in Chicago and around the nation. The leaders of our centers and clinics are actively seeking solutions, creating pathways, and leading efforts to shape educational practices and policies. As a College, we are making good on the promise of public education.
