Website THECB 18 Doctoral Characteristics Prairie View A&M University named its College of Education, the Whitlowe R. Green College of Education, in honor of an alumnus and educator whose $2.1 million bequest became the largest individual donation in the University’s history. Whitlowe Radcliffe Green graduated from Prairie View State Normal & Industrial College in 1936. A champion of education, he faithfully served as an economics teacher in the Houston Independent School District until his retirement in 1983. Well-respected by his peers, he treasured his alma mater and placed a premium on educating students. His outstanding contribution has provided scholarships and educational opportunities for many students in a variety of majors. Through the Whitlowe R. Green College of Education, Green’s memory will be cherished and remembered by the students, faculty and staff who will benefit from his fine example as an alumnus, philanthropist and educator. Known for producing outstanding teachers, principals and education administrators, the College is located in the Wilhelmina Fitzgerald Delco Building on the University’s main campus. Education is the heartbeat of society and graduate students of the College are trained to lead, administer and improve education in venues at all levels. Graduates of the College are equipped to serve as skilled teachers, counselors, school and district administrators, researchers, education program directors, policymakers and college and university administrators.


The Whitlowe R. Green College of Education is the designated teacher education unit of the University. The objectives of the College center on the areas of pre-service, in-service and continuing education of teachers in elementary and secondary schools. The purpose of the College’s graduate programs is to help practitioners in the field gain a mastery of knowledge and skills in a particular area or discipline. Programs are designed to meet the needs of a diverse student population including but not limited to elementary teachers, subject area teachers, teachers of children with special needs, counselors and those who aspire for supervisory and administrative roles in elementary and secondary schools. The graduate coursework also enables educators to receive certification and/or endorsement in additional fields. Individuals with degrees in fields outside of education who desire to be certified as teachers may pursue graduate studies to meet the state certification requirements.
