Not just classroom experience.
Classroom experience with meaningful mentorship.
University of Findlay education students not only benefit from classroom experience outside campus beginning in their first year, they are also paired with a UF education faculty member who mentors them throughout their classroom experiences. This faculty mentor is licensed and experienced in the student's area of study and even makes site visits to check-in with their student at the school.
Our faculty is made up of experienced teachers, educational administrators and human resource developers.
This one-on-one faculty mentoring is unique to UF's education program.
Don't just take our word for it.
Let our alumni tell their stories.
"College is much more than just classes.
Here at Findlay I've realized that the relationships and the friendships that I've made have far surpassed the degree that I received, and it's because of the setting and location of this place that can do that for you."
--Brent Wise, Director of Innovation & Extended Learning at Hilliard City Schools, Bachelor's of Arts in Education, AYA Social Studies, '04
