History of The College of Education

Kent State Normal School, founded in 1910, was charged with the mission of preparing classroom teachers. The College of Education became its own entity within Kent State during the 1929-1930 academic year. Kent State University has a long and distinguished record of preparing students to be educators for the nation's schools and universities. The first Bachelors degrees were first granted in 1913, Masters in 1935, and Doctorates in 1964. The original facilities in Franklin Hall were supplemented by the University School building and, in 1964, White Hall, named for Robert I. White, KSU President Emeritus and former Dean of the College of Education, became the new home of the College of Education. In 1974, the Graduate School of Education was formed within the College with all admissions, standards, and records centralized to support a strong graduate program. Today, the College of Education is part of the larger College & Graduate School of Education, Health, and Human Services which includes the Schools of Health Sciences; Lifespan Development and Educational Sciences; Foundations, Leadership and Administration; and Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum Studies.

Scope and Content

The bulk of the College of Education records is made up of curriculum files. These files comprise ten cubic feet and are arranged alphabetically by program within the College of Education (ADED, CTTE, etc) and then numerically by course number (ADED 60001, ADED 60002). The rest of the collection contains the following series: minutes for three separate committees, accreditation information from The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), student assessment guidelines including Praxis test information, Teacher Quality Partnership (TQP) questions and results, interdepartmental correspondence, curriculum vitae of faculty, publications (which is broken into three sub-series of handbooks, newsletters, and news clippings), projects, proposals, reports, studies, promotional materials for the College and its programs, photographs, slides, and audiovisual materials.
