Our Mission

The School of Education prepares individuals to become professional teachers, counselors, school leaders, and advocates for their professions in a pluralistic society

Our dedicated faculty and staff value and promote diversity and inclusion. We prepare highly-skilled teachers, counselors, specialists, and leaders to meet the needs of our local and global communities. The School of Education enhances the quality of life of students and the community through collaborative, innovative, and accessible education in teaching, counseling, and leadership.

In our undergraduate, graduate and certificate programs, students become analytical, competent, ethical, reflective, advanced practitioners, and leaders in school, mental health, and community settings that support research, life-long learning, and engaged citizenship.
