Stanford’s education school is changing their name.
They believe this can better reflect the rigor of its research efforts and its preparation of scholars, teacher-leaders, policy makers and educational managers and entrepreneurs.
The school would be adding the word “graduate” to its name.
Now the school will be known as “Stanford Graduate School of Education.”
Stanford University President John Hennessy said, “Our graduate school has long been a place for educational innovation, the training of expert teachers and the advanced study of pedagogy. Now its name is catching up with its pioneering work.”
The change in the name also underscores how the school has extended its graduate programs over the years.
It has launched advanced-degree programs in such areas as policy, organization and leadership studies and psychological sciences.
