Welcome to Tougaloo College, Division of Education, Supervision and Instruction.
It is an honor and a privilege to serve as the Dean of Education at Tougaloo College, a renowned historically Black College in Mississippi. For more than 140 years, Tougaloo College has enriched the lives of many students, their families, and the community. Tougaloo College has a long and successful history of providing an excellent liberal arts education, steeped in the essential traditions of equality and social justice.
We are very excited about the changes and the restructuring of our teacher education programs. We anticipate that our new programs and policies will better address the needs of our children and our communities in a technology-based society. In addition to these changes, we also offer personalized academic advising for our students. Our goal is to ensure that our teacher candidates are well prepared to teach and serve students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
The faculty and staff in the Division of Education are committed to supporting our students. Our primary objective is to foster academic success and professional development. We offer classes with small enrollments to engage our learners in effective and reflective teaching methods and strategies, opportunities to collaborate with the faculty on innovative research projects, and to participate in educational conferences at the state and national levels.
Our faculty and staff join me in wishing you success and happiness at Tougaloo College.
