Our Programs Center Around You
Welcome to the Edmund J. Gleazer School of Education at Graceland University. Our undergraduate and graduate programs have been uniquely created with our students in mind. In addition to serving traditional undergrads on the Lamoni campus, the Gleazer School of Education also offers accelerated undergraduate degree completion opportunities on both of its campuses for adult learners, as well as graduate degrees on its Independence campus. These programs that service all learner needs with their diverse options, continue to receive highest praise from accreditors and other agencies that recognize quality programs.
Our faculty are concerned with your learning experience and go the additional lengths to make certain you are being served by our program. In addition, all faculty for our programs have been selected because of the unique contribution they make to the Graceland mission.
Our programs center around you. The undergraduate teacher education programs are taught using progressive methods and a student-centered philosophy. Our Master of Education in Collaborative Learning and Teaching has garnered national praise for its unique design, in which graduate students create their own learning experiences based on the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards propositions. Our online Master of Education was recently honored with the prestigious USDLA Award for Best Practices in Distance Learning Programming. We have some very exciting experiences waiting for you.
Our unique approach allows you to decide how you would most like to learn, while giving you the strong foundation to take your professional development to National Board Certification status and beyond — to lifelong learning and enhancement of the overall quality of your life. Thank you for your interest in our programs.
