Welcome to the Department of Education

We believe that true excellence in education requires a commitment to equity and social justice. Thus, we strive to prepare creative, culturally competent, critically reflective graduates who possess deep knowledge in their fields of study and work collaboratively to achieve high quality education for all.

Education without social action is a one-sided value because it has no true power potential. Social action without education is a weak expression of pure energy.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

If who we are tells something about where we have been, then how we teach tells something about where we want to go.
