From inspiring the next generation of leaders and visionaries to pushing to close the achievement gap, educators serve a vital role in supporting and mentoring today’s youth while also fostering each school’s capacity to improve.
The Department of Curriculum and Instruction (EDCI) within the University of Connecticut’s Neag School of Education prepares aspiring leaders to serve at all levels of education, offering outstanding undergraduate and graduate programs of study for preservice as well as in-service educators.
EDCI is also the primary department involved in the Neag School’s Integrated Bachelor’s/Master’s program, a nationally recognized pre-service teacher education program that offers future educators a wealth of clinically rich experiences in a variety of classroom settings.
Support for EDCI provides funding for academic programs, clinical placements, and other initiatives designed to make a positive impact on tomorrow’s public schools, teaching force, and education leaders.
