PittEd Online Magazine

The University of Pittsburgh School of Education is publishing a new online magazine, PittEd, which will be released every few months. It’s a way for our alumni, faculty, staff, and students to keep up on research that’s being conducted, important news, program modifications, alumni updates, new faculty and staff, and what’s happening overall at the School of Education.


The City is Our Campus (Video)

Pittsburgh has progressed far and wide beyond the image long associated with the city. Located in Oakland, the Pitt campus is a unique area that harmonizes with Pittsburgh and its surrounding neighborhoods. The city is our campus, and that's why we interviewed some of our students to find out what they like best about the city.

Lauren Silverstein, a recent PhD graduate from the school, created and is directing the Jr. Apprentice program in Hartford, Conn. When she began the nonprofit program with the Hartford Consortium for Higher Education in June 2013, employers and local school leadership openly welcomed the project, which connects Bulkeley High School 11th graders with local employers for paid apprenticeship opportunities and career readiness programming.
