“We are elated that the hard work and exceptional talent of our students, faculty, and staff has propelled us to the #1 ranking of graduate schools of education by U.S. News & World Report,” said David W. Andrews, Dean.
The School of Education (SOE) ranks number 1 among the nation’s graduate education programs according to the latest ranking from U.S. News and World Report. The school moved up from number two last year and 6th in 2012.
“Our new rankings reflect the quality our efforts in teaching, research, and the development of evidenced-based models of instruction,” Dean Andrews said. In the past year, the school has implemented its first Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program and online EdD program. Both programs are attracting outstanding national and international students addressing critical issues in education. Three research centers (Center for Research and Reform in Education, Center for Social Organization of Schools, and the Center for Technology in Education) support the work of some of the nation’s leading academics and researchers. With a faculty that supports and mentors students, SOE is committed to educational reform by producing a new generation of scholars and practitioners in teaching, school administration, special education and counselling.
The U.S. News program rankings for education are compiled using data to determine how a school ranks relative to its peers in three areas: student selectivity, faculty resources, and research activity. Scores in these areas are weighted and combined with results of a peer assessment survey to determine a single composite score.
