About the Faculty

Education Building, University of ReginaThe University of Regina is predominately situated in Treaty 4 Territory with a presence in Treaty 6 Territory. Treaty 4 is the traditional territory of the Cree, Saulteaux, Nakota, Lakota and Dakota peoples, and is the homeland of the Métis people. As educators in these territories, it is our collective priority to ensure all learners gain a deeper understanding of our shared histories and contemporary relationships. Indigenization and reconciliation are our collective responsibilities. 

The Faculty of Education at the University of Regina has a fine reputation for strong undergraduate teacher education programs, graduate programs and adult education.  The Faculty has excellent longstanding relationships with educational agencies in the province and has been a leader in educational developments over the years.  Our motto, "Inspiring and Transforming Education", is reflected in the abstract logo of the emergence of a butterfly from a cocoon symbolic of the Faculty, which is always emerging, and in the process transforming what education means while being transformed by those new understandings.  Students and faculty journey together on this search to better understand education in order to bring meaningful change to their practice.

The structure of the Faculty features an administrative component consisting of a Dean, three Associate Deans (Faculty Development and Human Resources, Student Services and Undergraduate Programs, Research and Graduate Programs) and a Director of Professional Development and Field Experiences, a variety of Faculty programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and an array of subject area groupings that bring together faculty with similar disciplinary interests.  Various committees involve the active participation of faculty members in the work of the Faculty.  Several Aboriginal teacher education programs are associated with the Faculty: Saskatchewan Urban Native Teacher Education Program (SUNTEP, Regina), Northern Teacher Education Program (NORTEP, La Ronge), Indigenous Education (First Nations University of Canada, Regina), Yukon Native Teacher Education Program (YNTEP, Whitehorse), and Nunavut Teacher Education Program (NTEP).  Special units in the Faculty include the Saskatchewan Instructional Development and Research Unit (SIDRU) and the Centre for International Education and Training (CIET).

The Student Program Centre is located on the third floor of the Education Building. The Bureau du Bac is located on the second floor of the Language Institute. The Office of Research and Graduate Programs in Education is located on the second floor of the Education Building.
