School of Education Logo

Known for its inclusive, inspiring and caring approach to education, preservice teachers are invited into a rich and complex professional conversation with dedicated faculty, school mentors and indigenous elders, becoming very well-prepared to meet the needs of all learners in varied contexts.

The School of Education exists within the ethos of a Christian university of the liberal arts, sciences and professions.  Faculty have advanced degrees in education and are actively involved in the profession.  We are also engaged with the wider educational community through our investment in advancing educational research and educational practice that nurtures wisdom, compassion and care for all, integral ways of understanding and caring for the world, locally and globally, and transformation of learners and communities.
