At the University of Houston College of Education, we’re working to improve educational and health outcomes for all children and families through effective teaching, innovative research and strong partnerships. Students learn in the context of a multicultural city from distinguished professors who merge research with real-world lessons. We’re preparing future teachers, administrators, counselors, psychologists, health specialists, researchers and other leaders to transform lives in Houston and beyond.




We’re celebrating the graduation of our first two Teach Forward Houston fellows, Vanessa Trejo and Andrew Slack. Thanks to a unique partnership with Houston ISD, students in the program receive tuition support to attend UH and then return to their former district to teach. “It’s an awesome program – a lot of support coming from HISD and UH,” Slack said.
