Since New Era Educational Institute or NEEI started as a secondary school in 1975 in Carlos Palanca, Quiapo, Manila, it only needed to create the elementary department for it to be able to open its Institute of Education.
School Year 1989-1990 saw the start of the joint Institute of Arts and Sciences and Education with Dr. Amanda Mejorada as its firs dean and Dr. Zenaida S. Soriano as vice-dean.
School Year 1990-1991 Institute of Education (IED) had beed separated from the initial merger and was allowed to be lead by Dr. Zenaida Soriano, but her term was short-lived. She left for the United States of America.
As an offshoot to this, in SY 1992-1993, Dr. Francisca R. Reyes was designated as OIC of IEd. Her term saw the completion of all initial syllabi of the BSE and BEEd programs of the institute and initial increase in its population.
In the latter part of 1993, Dr. Lydia L. Libunao was designated as the Dean of Institute of Education. From this time on up to the present, Dr. Libunao continues to steward the College of Education.
CED started its accreditation endeavor in 1995 which showed its aspiration for quality instruction and learning. It applied for voluntary accreditation with PACUCOA.
Since then, the college produced licensed teachers who passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET). It also has proven its excellence in various competitions in the division and regional levels. CED as an institution is on its way to become a Center of Development for Excellence.
In 2007, College of Education applied for a permit to operate the ladderized education program namely the, BSTLE from TESDA, and is currently its goal to offer another program, the ETEEAP in coordination with the School of Graduate Studies.
CED now boosts of a very strong faculty roster of academically qualified educators committed to assist the college to produce graduates to be involved in the noble world of teaching.
Many had gone through the portals of NEU, and fortunate indeed are those who made it through the passage way via the College of Education, for they were given the opportunity to influence other people's lives and destinies, for them to be able to affect others.
