The MU College of Education must do its part to ensure that we support not only strong school systems, but also the educators who lead them. Now, more than ever, educated, qualified citizens are essential to strengthening our position in the global economy and the growing knowledge economy. Our college works to build the strongest pre K–12 schools by educating the best teachers, counselors, psychologists, administrators, technologists, librarians and special educators. We do this by providing excellent academic programs and instruction; by hiring and retaining the most accomplished faculty; by providing student experiences that reach far beyond the classroom; and through the outreach efforts of our centers, institutes and clinics. “When we come together, we can truly make a difference.” — Dr. rosemary T. porter It’s no secret that excellent academic programs and accomplished faculty make the greatest difference in the life of a student. We are very proud that our excellence in teaching and research has led the college to be ranked 41st in the nation among 278 universities with doctoral programs, according to the 2009 U.S. News and World Report. In this edition of Ed Life, we explore the impact of the College of Education on the state, nation and world. We highlight the idea of Classrooms without Walls (see Page 6) where students experience global learning communities both virtually and in person. Additionally, you will learn how our faculty and staff provide valuable services from mental health to professional development throughout Missouri and the nation. This issue also highlights the impact that alumni and friends of the College of Education have made over the course of the For All We Call Mizzou campaign. Collectively, more than $10.3 million was pledged in support of the College of Education allowing us to provide additional scholarships, support faculty positions and improve programs and facilities. This year, the college’s administrators, faculty and staff adopted the motto “A College on the Move” to encompass our tireless efforts to uphold the quality of instruction, research and service during these challenging financial times. This motto extends to our network of more than 45,000 MU education graduates around the world who make positive impacts through their personal and professional lives. When we come together, we can truly make a difference. Please keep us updated on your adventures in life and in your profession by e-mailing coedean@missouri.edu.
