21st Century Educators

Wichita State University is a major research university in a metropolitan area with an enrollment of almost 15,000 undergraduate and graduate students. In the College of Education, three departments are participating in the 21st Century Educators partnership—Counseling, Educational and School Psychology; Curriculum and Instruction; and Educational Leadership.

The WSU College of Education’s comprehensive plan, 21st Century Educators, is a multi-faceted effort to meet the educational demands of the Wichita public schools in the 21st century. It is designed to recruit and train skilled education leaders for the urban school environment, re-invigorate its long-standing collaboration with the Wichita school district in teacher preparation, cultivate diversity among teachers to reflect the changing demographics of the community, and develop support programs for K-12 to assist the Wichita school district in meeting the social and emotional needs of students.
