Skip to main content


At the University of Houston College of Education, we’re building a network of students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends committed to improving educational and health outcomes for all children and families. We’re fueling a future of stronger, healthier communities in Houston and beyond. To our donors, we say thank you. Your investments transform lives.

As UH has ascended to Tier One status, the College of Education also has transformed. We've raised the rigor and relevance of our instruction and scholarship. We've grown research activity significantly, increasing grant awards, publications and citations. And we've earned national recognition from U.S. News & World Report for our graduate online education program and from the Association of Teacher Educators for our teacher-preparation program.

To accelerate to the next level, we must continue to invest in the College.

How can you help?

  • Scholarships help attract top students who can graduate without the burden of debt.
  • Endowed professorships help recruit and retain top-notch faculty.
  • Donations to our centers and institutes help advance research and empower the community in the areas of education and health.

Together, we can continue to transform lives.

“I have been so blessed to receive generous scholarships like the Kristina and Pete Riepe Scholarship. This scholarship has helped to lift the burden of expenses during my final year here in the College of Education and put me one step closer to my degree.”

–Megan Proulx, teaching major
