Purdue University invites applications and nominations for Dean, College of Education. Formed in 1989, the College of Education is a flourishing academic community embedded in an outstanding scientific community, making major contributions to educational scholarship and human talent development. Our mission is to discover and develop human potential through groundbreaking educational research and teacher preparation. Faculty represent an impressive group of scholars, researchers, practitioners, and policymakers actively working to make education accessible and equitable for all students. A hallmark of the College is its commitment to removing barriers to quality education, to help students achieve at the best of their ability and to provide the opportunities that education affords to all with a purposeful focus on two signature areas: K-12 STEM Education and Social Justice and Diversity.

Established in 1869, Purdue is Indiana’s land-grant university, a comprehensive educational and research institution that is a member of the American Association of Universities (AAU). Purdue ranks fifth among public institutions in the United States. The West Lafayette Campus, located one hour north of Indianapolis and two hours south of downtown Chicago, has ten academic colleges with an enrollment of 41,500 students. Purdue’s strengths in Education, Engineering, Agriculture, Science, Veterinary Medicine, Pharmacy, Liberal Arts, Management, and the Health and Human Sciences contribute to a robust research and educational environment.

The College of Education consists of two interdisciplinary academic departments offering teacher education, undergraduate, and graduate programs. The Department of Curriculum and Instruction offers programs in the areas of art education, curriculum studies, learning design and technology, agricultural education, consumer and family sciences, career and technical education, literacy and language, English education, English language learning, mathematics education, science education, and social studies education.
