School of Education programs support the development of qualified, competent, and caring education professionals who prepare a diverse student population to become active and thoughtful participants in a democratic society.
The School of Education leads the campus in an all-university approach to preparing education professionals. These professionals create, assess, and modify environments, practices, and policies to foster the achievement of each and every learner; they strive for equity in schools and society, and they are committed to inquiry and professional growth for themselves and the advancement of P-20 education.
School of Education faculty model leadership in teaching, scholarship, and service through a grounded, reflective, learn-by-doing approach and through sustained collaborations with its education partners: P-12 schools, families, community colleges, universities, and local, state, and national agencies.
Commitment to Social Justice
As part of the Strategic Plan for 2021-2028, the School of Education agreed to a commitment to social justice in education.
"The School of Education will continue to develop and maintain a central focus and commitment to social justice education by working to challenge systemic inequality and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. Faculty and staff will make social justice education a priority in all aspects of their work to make our programs more accessible to candidates from underrepresented and historically marginalized communities." Read more about our strategic plan in our 2021 Annual Report.
Our Multiple Subject Credential Program shares the framework and resources used in the curriculum on their site, Social Justice Education Framework.
