90 Years 1929-2019


JRCoE Celebrates 90 Years

Established in 1929 as the School of Education, the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education is proud to celebrate 90 years of service in 2019.

JRCoE 90th Anniversary Fund   

Over the last 90 years, tens of thousands of educators have graduated from OU’s college of education. It is amazing to marvel how many students those educators have gone on to teach and mentor at all levels – early childhood, elementary, secondary, higher education, and adult education.

The Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education is marking its 90th anniversary by looking to the future – what does the next 90 years look like in education? What can we do today which will positively impact what our world looks like in 2109?

We invite you to join us in marking this milestone and creating an even brighter future by making a celebratory gift to the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education’s 90th Anniversary Fund. Everyone who makes a gift to the 90th Anniversary Fund will receive a commemorative pennant.
