The Neag School of Education is named after Raymond Neag, a successful entrepreneur, philanthropist and UConn alum whose generous support is experienced daily by our faculty, staff, and students. His donation of $1.5 million in 1996 endowed a chair in the gifted and talented program. In 1999, his gift of $21 million to the School of Education was, at the time, the largest ever given to a school or college of education in the country.

Best Graduate Schools 2010The University of Connecticut's Neag School of Education is not only the #1 public graduate school of education in the Northeast and the East Coast, it is ranked the 17th best public graduate school of education in the U.S. UConn is also currently ranked in the Top 20 of Public National Universities.

In its annual review of the best graduate schools in the country, U.S. News & World Report ranks the Neag School #28 among the 278 private and public education schools surveyed. Also significant are the rankings of the Neag School's core programs, which are individually assessed by U.S. News & World Report. Three rank among the nation's top 25, including: Special Education (12), Elementary Teacher Education (18) and Secondary Teacher Education (18).

Our reputation for quality was a key factor in the Carnegie Corporation of New York's decision to select the University of Connecticut as one of 11 members of its prestigious Teachers for a New Era network.

Although we are often noted for our teacher preparation efforts, the Neag School is home to a broad range of programs of study and research offered by our three departments: Curriculum & Instruction, Educational Psychology, and Educational Leadership. Although distinct in nature, these departments work collaboratively to prepare high quality clinicians, educators, and practitioners who are leaders in their fields.
