Greetings from the Dean

On behalf of the faculty and staff in the College of Education, welcome to Middle Tennessee State University. Since its beginning as Middle Tennessee State Normal School in 1911, preparing teachers has been central to the mission of this institution.

When asked who has made a real difference in our lives, most of us will name at least one teacher. We are proud of MTSU's rich history in teacher education and the many contributions our graduates have made to young people over the past 100 years. Today, preparing future teachers and school leaders is still central to our mission. While building on tradition, we also look to the future by offering students a course of study that focuses on research and best practices, strong content knowledge, and practical experiences in the field. The College of Education faculty and staff are dedicated to providing quality programs in a supportive and student-centered campus environment.

If you are considering a professional career as a teacher, school leader, or counsellor, please contact the college advisors or faculty and staff for assistance and information. Your experiences at MTSU will prepare you to become one of those people who make a difference through teaching.


Dr. Lana C. Seivers
