The Department of Curriculum and Instruction is a diverse connection of teachers, teacher educators, and researchers inspiring innovative teaching and learning. Our department values the contributions of linguistically and culturally rich communities, and aims to develop deeper understandings and instructional approaches that apply to a range of student needs. We are able to successfully accomplish this through our experienced faculty and staff, along with excellent resources in technology and research. This dedication to learning is demonstrated by ranking our program sixth among public institutions and ninth overall by U.S. News & World Report.
