 The College of Education 



The College of Education Strives for Academic Excellence: Students will undergo a systematic study of the act of teaching and learning, learn the principles that have guided the greatest teachers, and study what science tells us about being effective. Students will also be placed into teaching situations where they will be guided to apply theory into practice. The College of Education has been recognized for excellence in these areas, including NCATE Accreditation. Click here to view our most recent passing Praxis rates

I am also the Vice President of Physical Education for the Pennsylvania Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance and the co-chair for the Mt.Lebanon Employee Wellness Program. Slippery Rock University gave me the knowledge and skills to teach our youth to be healthy and active for life. I'm grateful for my Rock solid education."
