The College of Education promotes an understanding of education, service and leadership and their effects on the next generation. The core values in which we predicate the work that we do are engagement, leadership, transformation and service-community outreach. We are a college of diverse ideas, perspectives and intellectual pursuits. We strive to become a college that is representative of diverse people with dispositional stances that embrace all people regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age or ability. In the college, people will be treated with dignity and respect as human beings, and ignorance, bigotry, and harassment will not be accepted. These diversity ideals are important to us because we prepare professionals to work with children, families and communities in schools, service agencies, athletic organizations and leisure services industries.
The faculty is dedicated to teaching, scholarship and service. We have many celebrated faculty members who have received local, state, national and international awards and recognition for their rich and varied accomplishments. We hope that you will peruse this website and discover why we are proud of our students, faculty and staff and that you exit with an understanding of our commitment to education, service and leadership.
