The mission of the Bayh College of Education is to prepare, promote, and advance educational and human service professionals for a diverse and ever-changing world. The college faculty and staff hold the belief that they and their students are actively engaged in the process of Becoming a Complete Professional, with three essential elements of work: the educator as an expert or mediator of learning, the educator as a member of community, and the educator as a person. As such, student success, social justice and diversity, caring for others, responsibility, honesty, openness to change, and collegiality are valued by the faculty and staff.

The purpose of the Bayh College of Education is to prepare prospective teachers and a variety of other educational leaders including clinicians, counselors, school administrators, school psychologists, instructional supervisors, and university administrators to assume a significant role in providing professional development for experienced teachers and practitioners in each of these fields. In addition, the Bayh College of Education faculty, staff, and students contribute to school improvement, engage in research and scholarship necessary to better understand the complexities of teaching and learning, and provide service to the public.

The Bayh College of Education is the official teacher education agency of the University. The faculty of the Bayh College of Education, in conjunction with content faculty across campus, is responsible for the content, structure, and design of all curricula and field experiences and for preparing professional education personnel for beginning and advanced positions in teaching, administration, counseling, and other human service professions in both school and non-school settings. The range of responsibility of the Bayh College of Education includes pre-service, in-service, and continuing education of those who plan, implement, and evaluate learning environments.

Scholarships to students are available through individual departments and the Dean’s Office. Specific information can be obtained from the University Scholarships Office.
