Making good on the promise of urban public education
For over 50 years, the UIC College of Education has prepared teachers, principals, researchers, activists, and policymakers to work in partnership with Chicago communities to positively impact the lives of students and their families, and to counter indignities closely associated with poverty and race.
Our scholars and educators are actively seeking solutions, creating pathways, and leading efforts to shape educational practices and policies in Chicago and beyond. Our faculty, staff, students, and alumni advocate on behalf of children, particularly Black and Latinx children, in Chicago and around the nation. As a public institution dedicated to serving students and learners of all ages, we are making good on the promise of public education.
