College of Education
The College of Education, in its leadership role in the state and region, prepares professional educators who are responsive to the needs of constituencies and audiences with whom they interact. State-of-the-art preparation addressing current societal needs is a symbol of the responsibility the college takes for its students. Among the societal needs to which the college is dedicated are issues associated with the interface of technology and the infusion of cognitive and affective dimensions related to a multi-cultural, pluralistic society. The college's intent is that its graduates will be responsible masters of change and adaptation and be responsive to the needs of an ever-changing society. The College of Education, in its focus on excellence, promotes a professional development school relationship with a local school district(s) which will be able to involve all of the college's disciplines as well as partnerships with appropriate agencies, business, and industry.
