Welcome Education Students

The Oral Roberts University, College of Education is committed to helping develop Christian educators as professionals applying a Christian worldview in both public and private schools. These are teachers and educational leaders who are fulfilling the mandate of the Great Commission to go into all the world (every person's world) to make disciples and to teach.

The College of Education is here for those individuals who have realized their purpose is to be educators who will impact students, by living the Christian example, and teaching from an integrated Christian worldview.

Accreditation by NCATE has given our candidates in education greater recognition as graduates from a nationally accredited program for teacher preparation.

The College of Education's conceptual framework is designed around the theme "Transformed Educators". Transformed educators who will help transform society that we might see a miracle ahead: a transformed generation. Here at the Oral Roberts University College of Education, we believe we are transformed first by the power of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, and then we are transformed as professionals in education so that we will be Transformed Christian Educators making an impact on the current society, as well as, the next generation.
