The Education Department at Columbia is committed to the equitable education of all young people, especially those in challenging circumstances. We are located in the heart of Chicago’s South Loop and share a strong connection to the city and its school system.
Upon graduating, students in our programs apply their theory and research-based pedagogical craft in schools, social services agencies, community organizations, and other venues designed for the education of infants through grade twelve youth. After leaving Columbia, our students become effective agents for change, teaching, and social justice. Our students change the world.
