Welcome to the Council of Forensic Science Educators

The Council of Forensic Science Educators is an organization of professionals teaching forensic science in a variety of schools, including public and private universities, high schools, and international institutions.  The objectives of the Council are to promote and exchange resources for all involved in educating and fostering the next generation of forensic scientists.

A message from the President.…It is an exciting time to be involved in education in general and specifically in COFSE. Our organization has seen healthy growth in the past few years due to the dedication and integrity of our past and current executive board members. I thank each of you for all that you have done and continue to do. I would also like to thank our committees who are active and engaged in the forensic educational arena. We have strengthened our involvement at the American Academy of Forensic Sciences annual meetings through educational sessions as well as workshops and encouraged members to network at our annual meeting and social gathering. It is motivating to see advances in our field and to share ideas with colleagues and friends. As COFSE’s first international president my goal is not only to expand our organization in the United States but also to undertake outreach overseas and expand our international memberships. At this time of change in education due to COVID-19 it is important that we look to each other for ideas, inspiration and encouragement. I urge our current members to make use of the resources available at your fingertips via this website and to continue to share your ideas. — Karen Scott
