Watson College of Education

The Watson College of Education offers high-quality programs, extensive field experiences, strong ties to partners in the community, a collaborative learning environment and an unwavering commitment to our students' success. Watson alumni have a strong track record of professional success – highly rated by principals and recognized as leaders in the field of education and instructional design.


Your gift to the Watson College of Education will provide critical funding for:


  • Community outreach programs like the Betty Stike Education Laboratory where future teachers practice the methods they are learning in courses by teaching a child in a one-on-one setting


  • Students who are completing field experiences because the nature of the program makes it difficult to work


  • Professional development opportunities for UNCW students and faculty as well as educators within our 146 partner schools


  • Technology resources like visual and hearing impairment devices, iPads and robot kits that can be used in classrooms throughout the community to address a variety of individual learning needs
