Welcome to The Gladys W. and David H. Patton 
College of Education

At The Patton College, we prepare educators, practitioners and human service professionals to be leaders. The Patton College has more than 100 faculty members serving more than 1,800 undergraduate and 900 graduate students. Housed in McCracken Hall and Grover Center, we have a proud history spanning 125 years.  

On July 1, 2010, The Patton College became the home of several excellent programs previously housed in the College of Health and Human Services, resulting in the addition of two new departments. Today, the College comprises five departments: Counseling and Higher Education, Human and Consumer Sciences, Educational Studies, Recreation and Sport Pedagogy, and Teacher Education.
