As the home to more than 2,200 students and 130 faculty members, the University of South Florida College of Education values high-quality education and excellence in research, teaching and learning. Our college is nationally accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and our educator preparation programs are fully approved by the Florida Department of Education.

At a time when the skills and pedagogy of classroom teachers and school administrators is more important than ever, the USF College of Education offers state-of-the-art teacher training and collaborative and collegial graduate studies designed to empower educational leaders. Working closely with our partners in the school districts across the Tampa Bay region, we seek to work with our community to extend proven educational initiatives and discover new ways of preparing life-long learners in an era of increasing access to knowledge and technology.
