School of Education & Social Policy
Our vision is to educate for social transformation.
We in the School of Education and Social Policy believe that education is a transformative practice that changes the world.
Our dynamic, rigorous programs prepare students to engage with communities by linking theory, research and practice. With a focus on ethics and professionalism, we mentor students to be reflective and engaged educators, practitioners, and advocates for the common good. Our students become leaders and agents of change within schools, colleges, community organizations and criminal justice institutions.
The school collaborates with over 100 regional partners. We provide students a breadth of offerings in field-based experiences based in schools, community-based organizations, nonprofits, legal, social service and local agencies. The work of our students can provide children access to effective schools, and it can help strengthen families and their respective communities.
