School of Education

Mission Statement

To prepare exemplary educators and human service professionals to lead and engage in the local community and on a global stage.

We believe in preparing future educators for careers defined by excellence, instilling in our students a lifelong passion for public service, and emphasizing the importance of collaboration with all the key stakeholders in education, in both local and global communities.

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction provides the professional studies component for the next generation of effective teachers and school personnel who will work with 21st century learners from diverse backgrounds.

Studies in the Department of Human Development and Services are grounded in philosophical, theoretical, methodological, and practical foundations that describe adult education, counseling practice, or leadership.

For careers in clinical, corporate, commercial, and community physical fitness, we offer classes in the Department of Human Performance and Leisure Studies.

The Department of Leadership Studies is an interdisciplinary unit that focuses on service learning, research, developing innovative practices, and solving complex challenges through leadership.

Excellent instruction and our internship program are the keys to helping NC A&T students grow as educators from pre-service to in-service teachers, counselors, administrators, and other school personnel.
