The Br. Andrew Gonzalez College of Education (CED) of De La Salle University is one of the oldest colleges in the university where it dates back to 1936 when De La Salle College was authorized to confer the degree of Master of Science in Education. It was in 1959 when the college started to offer undergraduate degrees in Education. The College of Education seeks to train students to be holistic, interdisciplinary, innovative, and culture-sentitive mentors. While the College of Education (CED) of the De La Salle University is the smallest college in terms of undergraduate student population, it is the biggest college in terms of graduate student population.

The College of Education also provides professors and instructors for English and Physical Education subjects to freshmen. In July 2006, all CED offices and departments were transferred to the Br. Andrew Gonzalez Hall. The Gonzalez Hall, located between Fidel A. Reyes St. (Agno) and Taft Avenue, is where freshmen students attend their general education classes.

Historical background[edit]

In 1963, the Graduate School of Education, Arts and Science (GSEAS) was established as a response to the need for updating secondary education in the country. GSEAS began to focus on tertiary education, and in 1976 it implemented a program for science teachers in the collegiate level. In 1980, GSEAS offered the first PhD program in Counseling Psychology in the country, and a PhD program in Science Education. By 1982, it also implemented a doctoral program in Educational Management, and later a Doctor of Arts in Language and Literature. When the GSEAS was dissolved, the La Salle Teacher Training Center was created to strengthen the existing education programs. In 1987, the Center became the La Salle School of Education, which was elevated to college status three years later.
