UNI's College of Education (COE) is known for having some of the most innovative teacher education programs in the country. Year after year, our graduates are hired as teachers, principals and superintendents across the state, nation and around the world.
Students gain real world experiences through hands-on learning both in- and out- of the classroom. These experiences give them the skills and confidence they need to step right into their careers and excel.
COE faculty, staff, students and graduates are committed to educating, serving and leading our communities. Proof of this commitment can be found in COE's impact to the state of Iowa.
UNI is invested in your future, and we are making strategic changes to protect and strengthen the university. In addition, UNI has a responsibility to our students, their parents and taxpayers to be good stewards of our financial resources. UNI is restructuring some academic programs and closing those with low enrollment. These changes will make UNI stronger than ever. Read More.
