Savannah State University, the historically Black educational institution in Georgia, has announced that it has established the College of Education. The division was previously called the School of Teacher Education.
Michael Laney, provost and vice president of academic affairs at Savannah State, said that “the College of Education more accurately captures the expanded mission to offer degree programs in many areas of education and lays the foundation for future graduate degrees.”
The new College of Education was also authorized to offer a bachelor’s degree program in middle grades education with concentrations in language arts, mathematics, science or social studies.
Mary Kropiewnicki, dean of the College of Education, stated that “the addition of the middle grades program will bring a full complement of educator preparation programs to our campus, which is critical to meet the need for teachers in Georgia’s K-12 schools.”
