It makes sense that an educational institution would take pride in producing teachers to carry on its tradition of excellence, but here at UM it’s more than just a point of pride—it’s one of our calling cards. We’ve built a reputation throughout the Southeast for producing highly qualified teachers, leaders, counselors and other professionals. Simply put, our graduates get jobs. That should come as no surprise considering the accreditation efforts, curricular initiatives, scholarships and faculty resources that UM dedicates to our education programs.
