Judith Herb College of Education

Dean's Welcome

Dr. Virginia Keil

Welcome to the Judith Herb College of Education (JHCOE). I am Interim Dean Virginia Keil. As you explore our website you will discover the scope, diversity and excellence of our College. We currently offer

  • Five undergraduate degrees with 21 areas of concentration,
  • Four master’s degrees with 31 areas of concentration,
  • Two Education Specialist degrees,
  • Three doctoral degrees with 12 areas of concentration, and
  • Four certificate programs.

Our graduates go on to serve as leaders in a variety of fields, both academic and professional. While our students and alumni may appear to have diverse interests, they have one thing in common – they are deeply committed to serving others and to making their communities, their state, their nation, and their world a better place. Our faculty has much to offer and they are committed to supporting our students and the larger community.

In order to prepare our students for the 21st century with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to be leaders, the JHCOE has focused upon hiring outstanding faculty and staff, who have developed excellent programs that are both rigorous and relevant. As you examine our programs, please take time to review the contributions and accomplishments of our engaged faculty.

I also hope you will take time to explore the many opportunities that the Judith Herb College of Education and The University of Toledo have to offer. The possibilities for students to become fully engaged in their education are endless. From classes taught off-campus in PreK to 12 classrooms to extended, year-long field placements, from undergraduate and graduate research opportunities to internships, study abroad, or Camp Adventure, faculty and staff are committed to student engagement and success.

Becoming a Rocket means you have selected a University that has great expectations for your future. Choosing the Judith Herb College of Education means you will have an opportunity to make a difference. I look forward to seeing you on our campus.
