Student enrollment at Auburn University is approximately 25,500 with degrees available in 13 schools and colleges at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels.  This university is one of the largest in the South and remains in the educational forefront with a traditional blend of arts and applied science and is changing to meet the needs of today while living with a respect for Auburn traditions and spirit.  War Eagle!  

As a land-grant institution wDrs. Griffin, Hogg, & Witte e have a special mission to engage in partnerships with Alabama schools, community and state agencies and others to prepare their educational leaders as well as to learn from their practice and assist them in continuously improving it.  We are aware of rapid changes in the workforce and the importance of meeting those evolving needs with adaptive programs.  We are working on initiatives toward the global delivery of our programs and the globalization of our own programs here. Alabama's agricultural and industrial base is globally dependent and increasingly its student population in K-12 and universities is multicultural and we work to make our graduates sensitive to those realities.   Our curriculum and programs are a work in progress, mirroring the ever-changing environment, responding to the latest research findings and engaging in producing new knowledge to inform our teaching and improve the practice of our stakeholders and partners. We are a learning organization, teaching about and demonstrating, how learning organizations function in a rapidly changing world.  

If we can be of assistance to you or if you have any questions or comments, please contact me at (334) 844-4460 or the Graduate Program Officer, Dr. Maria Martinez Witte at wittemm@auburn.edu or (334) 844-3078.
