The College of Education

Developing change agents in the form of researchers, scholars, learning leaders, teachers, and counselors.  Change agents make a difference by promoting innovation, social justice, and lifelong learning.  They prepare citizens who are socially empowered, reflective, innovative, and caring members of our increasingly diverse communities and the world.
