About the department
Our mission is to provide responsible and innovative leadership in the development and dissemination of knowledge about education. We're known for the exceptional quality of our programs.
The faculty members are a diverse group of educators committed to excellence in teaching, research and community service. They are well known for their strong research profiles that inform their teaching and afford graduate students the opportunity to work on cutting edge research. A healthy level of external research funding enables faculty members to provide financial assistance to many qualified students.
The emphasis in the Department is not only on the communication of sound pedagogical principles and approaches, but also on the values of equality, diversity, and non-discrimination. Small class sizes are the signature of the Education Department, as faculty firmly believe in careful mentoring and a constructivist approach to learning.
