Narrative:
To an institution that is primarily focused on training educators, the location of the College of Education is of particular importance. In this case, the College of Education is located in a facility that contains state of the art teaching method classrooms and the Early Childhood Center, a laboratory school for training early childhood teachers. The building houses the centerpiece of our academic program. The facility was built at the start of the 21st Century as we look ahead to training future generations of teachers.
