The mission of the College of Education and Human Development is to: promote scholarly activity and research that informs and supports instruction and fieldwork; provide the necessary resources; and facilitate a supportive environment that will allow students to become effective learners, educators, practitioners, scholars, researchers and related specialists. These professionals will be sensitive to and experienced in working with diverse populations over a life span in schools, organizations, communities and families. Crucial to this mission is the conduct of research and evaluation, which guides the development of effective instruction, provides service to communities and represents exploration of issues meaningful to the teaching and learning process.
The College of Education and Human Development is committed to engaging in outreach programs, field experiences and activities that foster professional partnerships to provide services that challenge and enrich the lives of individuals across the life span in a changing, diverse and complex global society.
