Mission Statement

(Adopted March 1998)

We, the Professional Education Unit, are a learning community of faculty, staff, students, and practitioners whose mission is to create a climate for the development of teacher-leaders who will inspire and transform their individual communities within the context of a global society.

We seek to inspire all learners to reach their potential. This will be done by creating a positive environment so that future teachers and school personnel develop into reflective, educational leaders committed to excellence and the development of their own caring, transforming, vital, dynamic, learning communities.

We hold these assumptions to be true as we work to facilitate each individual's development and to create a transformational education program for the 21st century:

  • A quality education is the fundamental right of every child.
  • Teaching is important and school personnel are central in creating an optimal learning environment which ensures that each student learns.
