Welcome to the Alan Shawn Feinstein College of Education and Professional Studies (CEPS)
As one college with programs on two campuses, we offer a collaborative approach to higher education: (a) preparing high quality K-12 teachers and education professionals, (b) continuing and advanced education programs for working adults; and, (c) academic and professional development opportunities for returning students.
Our undergraduate and graduate degree programs and courses are offered in the School of Education (Kingston), in the School of Professional & Continuing Studies (Providence), and online to encourage diverse, high quality, and rigorous learning environments in a variety of learning environments.
The College also includes the Office of Strategic Initiatives (OSI) – a collaborative entrepreneurial entity that partners with education, non-profit, and business organizations –designed to create innovative academic and professional development programming that grow the 21st century skills necessary for an economically viable Rhode Island workforce.
If you are a prospective student, I invite you explore our degrees and course offerings (http://web.uri.edu/ceps/) and how we can assist you in creating a unique URI experience.
There are no limitations on learning. If you are a current student, thank you for choosing our college for your educational experience.
Remember: Our staff, faculty, and the Dean’s office will do our very best to support your academic, professional development, and life-long learning goals.
Dean Anthony Rolle
