About the College of Education
As an NCATE-accredited institution, the University of South
Florida Sarasota-Manatee meets the highest standards of
professional educator preparation in the United States. Our
programs have been examined by the best in the field and have
passed their test of excellence. We pledge to continue to
lead in teacher education as a reflection of our dedication to
you and to our community.
Our programs stress real-world clinical experiences, such as those offered in a professional development school, that enrich your education through the guidance and effective teaching strategies of our faculty and colleagues in the field. We carry out this work as a community of scholars in an active research environment. Students, scholars and practitioners work alongside one another to build successful educational institutions and programs and to positively impact the lives of students. Every day our faculty and students are in the community we share, discovering ways we can improve the education of children and adults for years to come, and sharing what we have learned with scholars internationally.
