School of Education

The WIU School of Education was formed in Fall 2019 by a merger of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction and the Department of Educational Studies


To Advance Educational Knowledge and Influence Educational Practice


The mission of the WIU School of Education is to bring knowledge, skills, and insights from our multiple disciplines to bear on questions educators face in their professional lives. This distinctive orientation prepares self-reflective lifelong learners, transformational leaders, and socially conscious practitioners for our evolving global society.
