College of Education programs prepare individuals for the broad spectrum of educational positions.

Primary consideration is given to preparing education students for the various positions in elementary, secondary, occupational, and vocational programs and the personnel who support these programs. In addition, the college provides consultative services and in-service training for the improvement of various aspects of education programs at all levels.

The College of Education cooperates with all other colleges and departments in its interdisciplinary approach to the preparation of teachers and other educational personnel. This includes participation in cooperative education programs through Career and Employment Services.

The undergraduate teacher education programs are accredited by the Kansas State Department of Education, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), and the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.

The College of Education participates in the intercollegiate programs in leadership studies, women's studies, and gerontology, described earlier in the Minors and Secondary Majors section of this catalog.
