Welcome to the School of Teacher Education and Leadership!

Radford University was founded as a Normal School for teachers in 1910 and has remained a leader in teacher education ever since. Today, the School of Teacher Education and Leadership is defined by our strong partnerships with public schools and our diverse programs that prepare teachers and administrators to serve children from birth through grade 12. The School is part of the College of Education and Human Development, whose reputation is nationally renowned for preparing responsive and engaged professionals who teach, lead and serve. 

Our candidates become highly skilled and participate in practical experiences in their fields of study. Our faculty feature expertise and research agendas in areas such as high impact teaching strategies, cultural responsiveness, instructional technology, globalization of the curriculum and interdisciplinary teaching.

Our education programs in early childhood/early childhood special education, elementary, middle, special education, gifteddeaf and hard of hearingeducational leadership, reading, science, math and social studies allow us to match our resources to needs of school districts and to model research-based practices. Our undergraduate curriculum also ensures that students have meaningful pathways to fulfill the four areas of knowledge—Scientific and Quantitative REASONING, Humanistic or Artistic EXPRESSION, Cultural or Behavioral ANALYSIS, and Applied LEARNING—as they complete their general education requirements.
