The Samuel W. and Marilyn C. Seidel School of Education is looking forward with pride in our heritage and enthusiasm for our shared future. Our roots run deep to the campus’ founding in 1925 as a school for training rural teachers. Today, we are committed to helping address teacher shortage areas – including establishing a pipeline of teachers in science and mathematics and diversifying the education workforce – and creating innovative teaching systems for next generation learners. Helping the newly re-defined school fully return to its roots in teacher preparation, Dean Laurie Henry is energized and excited about what the school has to offer and the many opportunities ahead in training students and serving the community.
We have a robust Professional Development School network that provides students with diverse experiences across dozens of regional public school sites and Living Learning Communities that extend the traditional classroom experience.

We are dedicated to preparing outstanding educators for tomorrow’s classrooms.
