2016-2017 Impact Report

Dean Carpenter's Letter

Dr. Stan Carpenter

This report is a glimpse into the long and proud history of the College of Education (COE) at Texas State University. In addition to our century-old reputation as the premier provider of certified Texas teachers, we are now taking our place among the top research institutions in the state. From autism to prison discipline and rehabilitation to STEM education and animal assisted counseling, COE faculty are making their marks and transforming these–and many more–fields of study. We are hiring top scholars in all phases of their careers who are changing our culture and the very face of education.

As our emphasis on research is growing, we continue to focus on our traditional role as a professional school, preparing educators and professionals in a variety of other fields. But if our role as a professional school is traditional, our current understanding and practice is anything but! We use cutting-edge pedagogy, backed by the best of current theory and research, to ensure that our students are equipped to become effective practitioners–professionals who make a true difference in the lives of the citizens of Texas and beyond.
