School of Education

Ranked No. 10 on the U.S. News & World Report list of top graduate schools of education in the U.S., No. 4 among public schools of education in the nation, and No. 8 on the list of top global universities for education and educational research, the UCI School of Education is an internationally recognized leader in education. Our belief in the transformative power of education as an engine for equity and economic opportunity inspires our faculty, students, staff, and alumni to work toward a brighter future for every student. 

You can join us in our mission to advance educational equity and access by supporting one of these critical initiatives:

Scholarships for Promising Teachers: Exceptional teaching is the most important school-based factor influencing student performance and lifelong outcomes. Join our campaign to put talented, passionate and diverse teachers in southern California K-12 classrooms by funding a scholarship for a promising teacher.  

K-12 Community Partnerships: The Orange County Educational Advancement Network (OCEAN) is home to community partnerships between K-12 schools, non-profit organizations, and the UCI School of Education. Through privately funded fellowship support, doctoral students partner with local schools to conduct research and implement solutions to issues facing Orange County students and educators.  

Dean’s Excellence Fund: Contributions to the Dean’s Excellence Fund allow the Dean to support priority initiatives in an ever-changing climate, including emergency grants for students. 

Center for Educational Partnerships (CFEP): CFEP’s programs target the unique needs of four separate but interconnected groups: K-12 students, K-12 teachers, community college students looking to transfer, and UCI undergraduates. Each year, CFEP programs reach more than 15,000 southern California youth, 3,200 teachers and 570 schools. Your gift of any amount will make an incredible impact on students and teachers throughout our community.
