Educators and Teachers

The Graduate Institute is especially designed for educators. The curriculum is ideal for teachers looking to hone their craft, the schedule is flexible for full-time work, and the costs are low thanks to scholarships especially for educators. Complete your degree or certificate on campus or online through our low residency program.


Originally founded in 1967 as the Teachers Institute in Liberal Education, the Graduate Institute seeks to preserve a commitment to the education of teachers as a special part of its mission.
