Equity and social responsibility

Our program is built on the principles of equity and social responsibility and a commitment to the transformative power of teaching. We equip professionals with the thorough understanding and practical knowledge they need to change lives.

Research-based practice

We approach teaching as so much more than a job or a skill: we know it’s a vocation, an art, and a science based on ongoing research. We build your knowledge base in your teachable discipline, in child development, in curriculum and in the most current research and social issues.
