About

The School of Education prepares individuals to be collaborative leaders and advocates for their professions. We promote education, counseling, and leadership as creative endeavors informed by research. In our initial programs, teacher candidates become analytical, competent, ethical, and reflective professionals who promote culturally-responsive practices in a pluralistic society. In our advanced programs, candidates are transformed from practitioners into key decision-makers, researchers, and partners in school and community settings.
