Louisiana Tech University believes that one of our most important roles within the education community is to work closely with our K-12 partners to address the ever-changing needs of the schools who are working to produce students who are academically, personally, and socially prepared to be successful in the post-high school world. To that end, the College of Education has taken the lead in the development and delivery of a variety of professional development courses designed to strengthen to content knowledge and pedagogical skills of classroom teachers in Louisiana.

In an effort to be more responsive to the expressed needs of our K-12 partners, the College of Education established in 2009 the Office of Professional Education Outreach. Operated through our Science and Technology Education Center, this new office will serve as an initial point of contact for schools and school districts seeking professional development services available through the College of Education at Louisiana Tech University.

Louisiana Tech will continue to provide tuition scholarships to education and other professionals, so that access to the highest quality instruction is available at an affordable cost. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you!


The Office of Professional Education Outreach is currently undergoing changes to help us to serve you better in the future. During this time, anyone interested in exploring our 2016-17 scholarship opportunities should contact our office directly. Please direct your inquiries to Ms. Jaicee Choate at jchoate@latech.edu or (318) 257-2866.
