Biographical / Historical

The Johns Hopkins School of Professional Studies in Business and Education (SPSBE) existed between 1999 and 2007, when it was renamed the School of Education. While the Johns Hopkins School of Education (SOE) was established in 2007, its origins can be traced back to the 1909 founding of the university College Courses for Teachers, later renamed College for Teachers. Focused on addressing the professional development needs of the regions educators, the School was thus defined by community outreachprimarily to urban communitiesand creative, part-time programs. This mission paved the way for expanded offerings to business and technology professionals, as well as to applied research and partnership activities with the regions business, education, and governmental communities. By 1947, the Schools part-time programs were consolidated into McCoy College, later known as the Evening College and Summer Session. In 1984, the School was renamed the School of Continuing Studies, and in 1999, the School of Professional Studies in Business and Education (SPSBE), a progression reflecting its dynamic nature.

In addition to being one of the oldest academic units of the university, the School was the first Homewood unit to enroll women undergraduates, the first to offer Hopkins degrees for working professionals on a part-time basis, and the first to offer Hopkins degrees at multiple sites throughout the region; it also led the university in the evolution and implementation of part-time, flexible format programs to advance lifelong, professional learning. The School also welcomed many military men and women returning home after wartime service to pursue their education on the GI bill.

In January 2007, SPSBE split into two schools: the Carey Business School and the School of Education. In the wake of the split, the School of Education found itself in the unique position of being both one of the oldest and one of the newest units at Johns Hopkins.
