Welcome to the Hunter College School of Education (SOE). Founded in 1870 as New York City’s first teacher-preparation school, Hunter continues its deep commitment to advancing our understanding and practice of education in an urban context and engaging our students as they prepare to enter increasingly complex diverse communities as professionals in education. Through research, teaching, and community engagement, SOE faculty, staff, and students make significant contributions to improving the lives of youth, families, and the community.
The Hunter College School of Education relies on strong partnerships in local schools and agencies to enhance the experience of our students. We believe our work is built on the strengths and assets of the dynamic urban community in which we live.
