A distinctive element the Department of Teaching and Learning is that our programs prepare professionals poised with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to become change agents because they possess the ability to meet the academic needs of students in urban environments; as well as the needs of the broader learning community.

Coppin State University's legacy of ensuring that teacher candidates are qualified to respond to the needs of learners is reflected in our steadfast commitment to make a difference in the lives of children.
