Department of Urban Education

The Center for Houston's Future has rightly noted that educational attainment is the biggest predictor of success for cities and metro areas. A vibrant community requires great schools; great schools need dynamic, highly qualified teachers.

UHD's Department of Urban Education understands and embraces its role in the greater Houston area as the intellectual and training center for teachers responsive to urban students. To assure that students in the UHD's Urban Education Department become successful urban teachers, we prepare them with the skills and knowledge necessary to teach our next generation.

We are dedicated to being partners in sustaining a strong, vibrant urban environment. To that end, UHD's Department of Urban Education certifies successful teachers who will prepare our next generations of society's leaders.

Everyone knows that schools will produce our next generation of leaders; every leader will point to a teacher who made a difference in her or his life. UHD is where those dedicated individuals became teachers.
