The School of Education at UC Davis is committed to eliminating inequities in the schooling and learning opportunities of diverse learners to advance the power of knowledge and the promise of education. Fulfilling this commitment requires us to be responsive to the needs of educators, parents, students and community organizations, and to be innovative in our approach to challenges facing public education leaders and policymakers. Our programs, resources, and special initiatives reflect our flexibility in meeting a variety of needs in and out of schools in our community.
In addition to preparing educators through our teaching credential program and providing ongoing professional development for teachers, the School offers special programs to strengthen teachers’ learning and teaching, educational leaders’ effectiveness, and international scholars and students.
The School of Education is committed to making an impact in the lives of youth through both its research and its academic programs that prepare educators to focus on the needs of students first. In addition, we offer several programs that serve youth directly. These programs are aligned with our focus on literacy and science education.
