The College of Education

The College of Education is dedicated to preparing educators, researchers, counselors, educational diagnosticians, administrators, and leaders who will address the needs of local, regional, national, and transnational communities. Building on the multicultural and multilingual richness of the Paso del Norte border region, the College strives to model transformative, boundary-crossing education to develop innovative, engaged, and contributing members of a global society. The college consists of three departments with more than 50 full-time faculty members who serve approximately 2,000 students at the undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral levels. Current external funding in the College totals nearly $6 million, from sources such as National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Education, and the Spencer Foundation, as well as state and local entities. Since 2002, the College has prepared more than 8,500 teachers who serve at schools throughout the El Paso region. Among its most recent accolades, the College was ranked #1 in 2015 by Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education for awarding the most bachelor’s degrees in education to Hispanics in the nation.
