School of Education
A better future starts in the classroom

Education has the power to change lives. At UC Davis, we’re committed to making sure all learners have equal access to a quality education, whether they’re in kindergarten or community college. We’re changing education in California and across the nation through our groundbreaking research and our top-quality teacher education program.

This means that a student from an impoverished family can receive the education that will transform his future. It means a student who speaks English as a second language gets to take classes in a dual-immersion classroom where she can achieve the same level of academic success as her peers. It means students with disabilities have teachers who know how to support their learning, and historically marginalized students of color have access to teachers committed to disrupting racial inequities in education.

On Give Day, show your commitment to a quality education for all by making a gift to the UC Davis School of Education. Your gift may send a teacher to school, fund research that changes lives or provide services to a disadvantaged child. Your gift, no matter the size, will make a big difference to our faculty and students—and to the children whose lives will be changed through education.
