The generosity of our donors, like you, is felt throughout the College of Education. It is visible in the spaces our students visit every day – like our collaborative work areas, technology-rich classrooms, and our newly renovated STEM education learning spaces. It is visible in the outcomes of our students who conduct important research in areas such as addressing mental health challenges, the science of reading, and studies related to families and sport to name a few. While you may not have the chance to personally meet a scholarship recipient, we hear about their life-changing experiences and their new enriched perspectives, which were made possible in large part by your generosity.
Through your gifts, we are able to provide unparalleled educational experiences for our students and faculty. Curious how your support directly impacts students? Here are just a few examples:
- Helps secure internship opportunities for doctoral students supporting the Psychological Services Clinic
- Provides diagnostic testing equipment to assist with over-burdened school districts allowing graduate students to assess the needs of their students
- Supports the recruitment of prospective CyberTeach-LA students to increase the number of certified computer science teachers
- Provides critical resources for seed funding for faculty research, such as digital education, literacy, and the integration of accessibility materials and instruction
- Provides state of the art learning spaces for both AE Phillips Lab School and COE students
- Allows opportunities for industry, education, and workforce partnerships to enhance Louisiana’s prosperity pipeline
- Provides retention scholarship funding for students facing extraordinary circumstances that might derail their educational careers
When we say your gift matters, we mean it. These, and dozens of other examples, cannot happen without the financial support donors provide to the College of Education. Will you support our students and faculty today by making a gift on this Giving Day? With your help, we will continue to prepare the next generation of exceptional leaders in mental and allied health and education for our state and nation.
