Mission Statement

We desire for our graduates to be innovative teachers, experienced professionals and educational leaders, who have a commitment to the improvement and sustainability of schooling and the development of children and adolescents. We support our students as they become critical thinkers and researchers who improve learning locally, nationally, and globally; and are committed to promoting this through the classroom environment, field-based, and experiential learning opportunities.
