Preparing Educators as Leaders

Shaping those who shape the world.

Graduates from the KU School of Education move on to serve the world in various capacities.  Our graduates have taken teaching, leadership, and wellness positions.  Others have found themselves in research-focused and/or university-level faculty positions.  Whichever path you choose to take, we know that you will leave the University of Kansas better prepared to shape the world.    

As we continue to embark in our strategic plan to be recognized as a top-tier, public, international, research university - our success will be measured in the lives we change, by the jobs we create, in the communities we strengthen, and by the lifetimes brightened through our education and research. Thank you for being a part of our legacy.

Let us help prepare you for your post-graduation plans at KU.
