The mission of the College of Education (COE) is to prepare skilled professionals in the fields of education, rehabilitation counseling, mental health counseling, interpreting studies, American Sign Language studies, health promotion, exercise science, and human performance. Our graduates are academically strong, ready to contribute to the continuously evolving state of their chosen professions and prepared for a variety of diverse and complex roles in schools, service organizations and businesses.

The College of Education includes the Division of Deaf Studies and Professional Studies, the Division of Health and Exercise Science, the Division of Education and Leadership, the Office of Clinical Practices and Licensure, and the Office of Assessment and Accreditation.

All academic programs in the College of Education are aligned to external professional standards, and all programs require practica or internship experiences where our students apply what they have learned to the real world. The Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling (RMHC) program is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). The curriculum also meets the educational requirements for the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists (OBLPCT), Certified Rehabilitation Counselors (CRC), and the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC). Some state license boards will require additional courses. The teacher preparation programs are accredited by Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) and the College of Education is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
