                                                    Welcome from the Dean

Welcome to the College of Education at Fort Hays State University! This website showcases the many successes of our candidates, faculty, and staff. We take great pride in preparing early childhood, elementary and secondary teachers, special education teachers, school specialists in reading, library media, English as a Second or Other Language, counselors, and school administrators for schools. We also prepare community counselors and business/industrial personnel. We offer bachelor, master, and education specialist degrees housed in two outstanding departments - Advanced Education Programs and Teacher Education.

We are committed to offering quality programs that prepare candidates to meet state and national standards. The programs offered through our College have been accredited through the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) and the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).

The College has caring, knowledgeable faculty members who love to teach. Faculty members are excellent academicians and practitioners, with knowledge grounded both in theory and school/industry-based experiences. They conduct meaningful research and provide service that positively impacts the lives of our partners, community, university, and specialized professions. Our students are exceptional and equally committed to excellence in education.

We invite you to explore our site and learn more about the people, programs, and initiatives that help us achieve the college's research, teaching, and service mission. I hope you find these pages helpful. Please contact us with any questions.
