College of Education

Message from the Dean

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the College of Education at North Carolina A&T State University!

My name is Paula Groves Price, and I am proud to be the Dean of this wonderful College that develops transformative educators, leaders, and counselors. There is much to be proud of in the College of Education, as our faculty, staff, students, and alumni make a positive impact in the lives of countless families as we fulfill our mission to be leaders in equity, access, and advocacy in all that we do.

Our bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, and doctoral degree programs span three departments: Educator Preparation; Counseling; and Leadership Studies and Adult Education. Across all three departments, we are unapologetically committed to culturally responsive and sustaining pedagogies and research and advocacy work that lifts the communities that we serve and contributes to greater justice.

Our graduate programs in Counseling and our Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) are nationally ranked by the U.S. News and World Report, and our Aggie Educators are among the best teachers in the state, consistently noted for supporting student growth and narrowing equity gaps. Likewise, our School Counselors and Master of School Administration students and alumni are among the best school leaders in the state, building inclusive school environments daily for students to thrive. Our Adult Education students and alumni are improving the conditions and experiences of adult learners in various contexts, and our doctoral students in Leadership Studies are among the top executives and change makers in higher education, business and industry, and community-based organizations.

Without a doubt, the faculty, staff, students, and alumni of the College of Education are the epitome of the “Aggies Do” mantra. We are active scholar-researchers and practitioners who are committed to solving issues of systemic inequality by transforming learning and practices to improve the lives of children and families in both urban and rural environments.
It is a wonderful time to be at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.  I encourage you to learn more about us and join our College of Education family of AGGIES who are: Assessment leaders, Global thinkers Galvanizing Visionaries, Inclusive agents of change, Equitable educators and advocates, and Transformative Scholars.
