School of Education
A better future for all begins in the classroom

The UC Davis School of Education has long been committed to addressing education inequities at every level through the preparation of the best education leaders, researchers, and teachers in the country. Now, more than ever, we need high-quality educators who will serve as advocates for all learners, and research and policy analysis that helps us to understand pathways to student attainment and success. During this uncertain time, our faculty and staff remain dedicated to transformative research and teaching, and are working remotely to continue our mission.

Your support will allow us to continue the course of confronting and eliminating educational inequities. In addition to opportunities to support student scholarships, innovative research and transformative programming, you will help us to continue to focus on creating a learning environment where our students can thrive and achieve their educational goals. 

Your gift, no matter the size, can have a tremendous influence on our students and in classrooms across the country.

We are humbled by the compassion, generosity, and dedication of our education community and are grateful for your continued support.

Time is running out to make an impact! Join us!
