Whitlowe R. Green College of Education

Welcome to the Whitlowe R. Green College of Education Website!

Whether you're a current or prospective student, a member of our college faculty or staff, an alumnus of the college, an interested parent, or a potential donor, we welcome you to the College of Education at Prairie View A&M University!

The College of Education is one of eight PVAMU colleges offering graduate and undergraduate programs and is comprised of three departments, the Department of Curriculum & Instruction, the Department of Educational Leadership and Counseling and the Department of Health and Human Performance.

The conceptual framework for both the initial and advanced programs at Prairie View A&M University has evolved over the last fourteen years to view educators as facilitators of diverse populations. The conceptual framework was developed by the Unit faculty after extensive review of the literature in education and guidelines of learned societies. The conceptual framework is based upon current issues such as changes in demographics, global perspectives, importance of problem solving, critical thinking and decision making skills, technological demands, and the need for life-long learning. The framework consists of four major goals anchored by technology and assessment.
