What We Stand For


(Adopted by faculty on December 10, 2018)

We prepare educators and health professionals to be leaders in our global society through student-centered undergraduate and graduate curricular, experiential, and research opportunities.

Our Vision 

The College of Education and Health Sciences is a highly engaged learning community modeling interdisciplinary collaboration through academic programs, research initiatives, and community engagement that graduates highly sought-after professionals prepared to serve diverse communities.

Core Values

Our values form the foundation of our philosophy of education.  Values translate into educational goals and purposes that drive all that we do, in the classroom and beyond.

Scholarship and Reflective Practice

We believe educators and practitioners must be scholars who value and engage in lifelong learning. Our community supports the never-ending quest for knowledge, thoughtful reflection, and evolving practice.

Diversity and Inclusion

We value human dignity and diversity in all forms, embrace our differences, and honor all voices. We understand the collective power inherent in fully inclusive communities where each may meet their full potential to contribute.    

Health and Wellness

Our conception of education is holistic. We understand the body, mind, and heart must be nurtured equally in all that we do.  

Creativity and the Arts

Creativity and vision are strengths we value and nurture. An open, creative mindset encourages constant reflection on our world and new ways of making it more humane, just, sustainable, and beautiful.

Social Justice and Leadership

We understand that as educators and practitioners, we are inherently leaders and role models in all that we do. We work to build strong, civically engaged communities that fearlessly strive for a more just world.
