At the School of Education, we believe that education is more than filling heads with facts, but caring for the whole person – intellectually, emotionally and spiritually.
All of our programs share a commitment to intellectual rigor and the use of knowledge for the betterment of our local, national and international communities. We commit to careers in under-resourced schools through field experiences in local international sites, demonstrate our dedication to faith formation through the Institute for Catholic Education and build our local community through the Billiken Teaching Corps.
That’s a lot to be proud of.
