About


Mission

We are a community dedicated to social justice and equity in education. Our students, faculty, and staff are working towards improving educational practices, preparing new teachers for success, and helping students learn while supporting their cultures and identities.

We are reimagining what education can be. Our department has three main focus areas.

  • Research: Our research spans the breadth of educational practice for children and adults. We are dedicated to creating more engaging and effective ways to teach and learn.
  • Teaching: We prepare our students to become effective leaders and teachers who understand how our culture and society impacts students, classrooms, and the field of education so we can make change for the better.
  • Equity: We partner with schools and communities to support the engagement and preparedness of all learners.

Commitment to Diversity and Social Justice

We are committed to promoting equity through teaching and research. At the center of our commitment to reimagining education is our determination to build a more diverse community of students, faculty, and staff. We strongly encourage people from all ethnic, social, and gender groups to apply to our programs and job openings. Read more about our commitment to diversity and social justice.
