TAMIU Recognized for Excellence
in Teacher Education

Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) has been recognized by The Online College Database as one of “Top Colleges in Texas Shaping the Next Generation.”

The new ranking honors those post-secondary institutions that graduated the most education and teaching professionals in 2012.  TAMIU was ranked number 20 out of 67 Texas colleges and universities surveyed.  The ranking also noted the University’s low tuition and fees.

"Many colleges and universities have tremendous teacher education programs," said Doug Jones, founder of The College Database. "But which ones are producing the most young educators today? We wanted to identify the colleges making the largest impact on our students."

The College Database is a not-for-profit organization that provides free information about education options both nationally and locally to students, parents and other interested parties on an easily navigated web site. It has become a leader in providing educational information to libraries, high schools and career centers across the country.

TAMIU dean of the College of Education, Dr. Catheryn Weitman, said the College is excited about its selection.

“This affirms the perseverance, hard work, and dedication of our students, faculty, and staff, and this accomplishment would not have occurred without their combined efforts.  We are honored by this selection,”  Dr. Weitman said.
