Our Mission, Vision, and Goals

Our mission as adopted by the faculty in December 2010, was: “to prepare candidates majoring in education and allied fields to take teaching, leadership and counseling roles in schools, hospitals, clinics, and other educational and therapeutic settings. Based on the belief that the educational personnel of the 21st century will have to adapt to rapid social, cultural, demographic, and technological changes, our programs mesh a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences to professional preparations that link theory with practice in meaningful ways. As a scholarly community, we are committed to providing educational opportunities for professional growth at the Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral levels by creating authentic academic and field experiences, cultivating respect for the diverse populations we serve, embracing ethical practices, and preparing our students to become reflective change agents through research, collaboration and leadership.”
