2018 marks 100 years of promoting lifelong learning. Happy 100th anniversary to the College of Education!
It’s never too late to continue an education. Julie Epton came back to school to follow her lifelong dream of becoming a teacher. “Ever since I was a kid, I’ve wanted to be in the healthcare field or teach”, she says.

College of Education Academic Advisor and Outreach Specialist Fabiola Sandoval-Morado believes that “Education is one of the biggest catalysts for social justice” and that it “brings out the best in a generation and creates what America is supposed to be.” Her goal for the College of Education surrounding this belief is to increase the enrollment and retention support for underrepresented students in the College to match that of the University.
