Message from the Dean

Welcome to the College of Education!

We are in an ever-changing world, which calls for more interdisciplinary partnerships and collaboration with external partners. Faculty and staff within our college work to prepare professionals across many fields of education, including teacher preparation, counseling, curriculum studies, curriculum and instruction, educational leadership, higher education, science education, and special education as part of a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs. We value partnerships with schools, community agencies, centers and institutes, and international organizations. We are committed to creating a diverse workforce of educators, counselors, and leaders who will teach and lead in ways that promote our TCU mission: To educate individuals to think and act as ethical leaders and responsible citizens in the global community.

TCU’s College of Education faculty are nationally recognized researchers within their fields of study, national leaders in their professional organizations, and award-winning teachers. Through our collaborative programs and high quality research and teaching, we aim to improve lives.

There is much excitement and energy within the College of Education. We look forward to the future as we focus on providing a transformational educational experience for our students.  We welcome your ideas and participation with the college. We hope you decide to join us at TCU.

Go Frogs!
Jan Lacina, Ph.D.
