Centers, Institutes and Special Projects

The College is home to a number of Centers and Institutes, which contribute greatly to its mission.

  • For example, the David C. Anchin Center for the Advancement of Teaching, through its program of activities and research, encourages and supports the development of effective district and school practices, "supporting the schools of today, inventing the schools of tomorrow."
  • The nationally renowned Gus A. Stavros Center for Free Enterprise and Economic Education was created to promote the integration of free enterprise and economic education in the K-12 schools in the ten-district region, which it serves.
  • The Institute for Instructional Research and Practice and The Institute for At-Risk Infants, Children and Youth and their Families are among the University's most successful at securing grants and contracts with a total of $87,497,248 since they were founded some twenty years ago.
  • The Center for Research on Children's Development and Learning has a mission to improve children's development and quality of life through research, outreach and social policy advocacy.
  • SCATT (the distinctive, award-winning SunCoast Area Teacher Training Honors Program) is very well known for enhancing the already excellent educational programs of the College with voluntary workshops and seminars for students who want to excel. SCATT has over 8,000 graduates in leadership positions in regional schools.

There are a number of other centers and institutes, which together form a rich tapestry of research and service and enhance the College and its community mission beyond the function of its academic departments. For more information, click on "Centers and Institutes."

The Organization of the College and its SACS Reports

The academic programs of the College are primarily located within its eight academic departments. Folders for each department are organized alphabetically:

  •   Adult, Career and Higher Education
  •   Childhood Education
  •   Educational Leadership and Policy Studies
  •   Educational Measurement and Research
  •   Psychological and Social Foundations of Education
  •   School of Physical Education, Wellness, and Sport Studies
  •   Secondary Education
  •   Special Education.    


Within each departmental folder there are reports evaluating the success of each program. Those reports are 1) listed alphabetically by program 2) begin with the highest level of program offered (the Ph. D., for example) and 3) begin with the most recent year (2003-04) and work back 2-3 years.


Faculty vitae are located in the University FACT system and are also generally posted on department web sites.   Course syllabi are also located on the site of the department in which they are housed.


It is our hope that this introduction provides an entry into a very large and complex college, one with marvelous assets among its faculty and one dedicated to exemplary teaching, meaningful research, and service to our colleagues in the greater educational community.
