Future Students

Our mission: Preparing educators to be knowledgeable, ethical, caring decision makers for a diverse and changing world.


Welcome to the College of Education at Kansas State University where we’ve been preparing teachers for more than 150 years. We are so excited about what your future holds as you transition to life at K-State, and we are truly grateful you are considering our professional teacher education program. Many of our students tell us they always wanted to be a teacher while others tell us they were inspired to become a teacher – because of a teacher. That may be you someday.

Our college has assembled an experienced faculty, acquired the latest technology, and built professional connections across the state to create a robust educational experience for you and your classmates. What’s truly special about our program is all of the support and guidance you enjoyed as an undergraduate student goes with you through the EdCats program as you transition from your collegiate career to your professional career. That’s what being a Wildcat is all about.

We deeply appreciate your interest in the college and the profession. I look forward to seeing you in Bluemont Hall first as a treasured student, and later as a treasured alum.

With purple pride,
