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.

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.
