Message from the Dean

The College of Education has a long and rich history of preparing outstanding educators, and we're so confident in the excellence of our programs as well as our renowned faculty that we promise to stand beside you during your first year of teaching. 

As dean, working with faculty, staff and students across the college and university, I am dedicated and committed to providing our learners with high quality programs, excellent service and supplemental resources that support the educational community at GCU. As learners prepare themselves as highly effective teachers and administrators in pursuit of their personal and professional goals, the College of Education is dedicated to train, support and mentor them while upholding the highest integrity and ethical standards. As a graduate of Grand Canyon University's College of Education, I invite you to join a select and dynamic group of educators. I believe that we make a difference in the lives of our children and adolescents.
