Our future here in the Northwest and throughout the nation is inextricably linked to how well we prepare the scientists, artists, entrepreneurs and leaders of tomorrow to take up the pressing challenges that lie ahead. Do we want today’s students to be critical thinkers? Active participants in civic life? Able to bring an entrepreneurial mindset to the challenges facing society? To be resilient and compassionate citizens? If so, we must invest in great teaching.
One of the nation's top 10 education schools, the University of Washington College of Education dedicates its resources to making an excellent education a daily reality for every student. We partner with poverty-impacted, culturally diverse schools and communities to close opportunity gaps and help all students thrive.
