Welcome from Department Head Eric Torres  

Eric Torres

Being part of the Department of Education at UMD means you are part of our community. Together, we create an environment conducive to preparing the learner-sensitive educator. This is reflected in the name of our building Endazhi-gikinoo’amaading, meaning ‘The place of teaching and learning together’ in the Native Ojibwe language.

Our website is designed to assist you and provide the basic information on how to successfully obtain a degree in education, whether at the undergraduate level, graduate level, post-baccalaureate or certification program.  While the website is designed to be comprehensive and does provide a wide array of information, we realize that the human touch can never fully be replaced and so we encourage you to contact us personally through the programs website.
