Dean's Message

Cecelia Traugh, Dean, School of EducationI am pleased to introduce you to the School of Education and the opportunities it holds for you as an educator.

We are located in Downtown Brooklyn. Our programs have a complete urban focus and prepare teachers, counselors, administrators and school psychologists for the adventure of urban education. One of the many strengths of the Brooklyn Campus School of Education is that a vast majority of our future and practicing educators are themselves urban dwellers, immigrants, or members of a wide variety of ethno-linguistic and racial groups. They bring to the classroom the experiential knowledge of diverse urban communities, essential to educate the children and families in these communities. Our location and our students, in combination with our nationally recognized faculty, make the School of Education an exciting place to study.

The foundation of our programs is our KEEPS Mission. Reading this carefully, you will see that we are an urban education program grounded in important educational values and structured around many opportunities for:

  • work in schools and other educational settings
  • the development of an inquiry stance toward practice
  • the integration of theory and practice
  • achieving high standards

We welcome you to our Web site. It will provide you the full text of our KEEPS Mission, descriptions of all our programs and information about our faculty members.
