Program Mission

We believe in the power of education to create a strong democratic and sustainable society that honors diversity and inclusivity. The mission of the School of Education, in collaboration with our community partners, is to support the development of effective, reflective, and engaged educators who value the identities of all students, their families, and the communities they serve. We are committed to scholar-practitioner inquiry and responsible praxis-based pedagogies that serve as tools toward cultivating socially and ecologically just practices in classrooms, local communities, and beyond.

Graduate Advising Requirement

Advising is recommended each semester for MA in education students. Upon admission to the program, graduate students are assigned a faculty advisor. Graduate students are encouraged to meet with their assigned advisors as they begin their program and each semester thereafter. The School of Education Graduate Coordinator oversees the MA in education faculty advisors. All forms and approvals requiring the signature of the graduate coordinator must be processed by the department housing the advising option.
