Faculty Support

Chairs, Professorships, and Fellowships

Talented faculty members are the hallmark of the College of Education. They are the foundation of academic effort, and it is their work that equips our graduates for success and facilitates advancements throughout the state of Texas and beyond. The college's leadership position is not only related to the quality of our research but also to its influence. Our faculty are sought-after experts and renowned researchers in the fields of education as well as health, sports and fitness management. These award-winning professors are responsible for training tomorrow’s leaders. Endowed chairs, professorships and fellowships will give us the competitive advantage to recruit and retain a world-renowned faculty of gifted teachers, scholars and innovators.

Student Support

Undergraduate Scholarships and Graduate Fellowships

The College of Education must raise the bar to fund the best and brightest. Financial assistance is often a primary deciding factor for prospective students. Too often we lose top talent to schools that are able to provide more substantial student support. Robust and plentiful undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships will give the college a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining exceptional students. It will keep top minds in Texas and secure a strong future for the state. Your support helps our students become influential leaders committed to making the state, nation and world a better place.
