About The Patton College of Education
At the Patton College of Education, we’re committed to creating lasting changes that make the fields of education and human services more inclusive, both in practice and in the way people think about them. The Patton College has more than 100 faculty members, serving over 1,300 undergraduate and 750 graduate students — students that delve into what matters, leading by experience in the classroom, workplace, in our communities and the world at large. Housed in Patton Hall (formerly McCracken Hall), we have a proud history spanning over 135 years. Our work isn’t easy, and that’s exactly what keeps us stepping up to the challenge.
