School of Education

Board of Advisors

The time and commitment given by our Board Members is greatly appreciated.


The purpose of the School of Education Board of Advisors is to improve the quality of education provided children by working collaboratively with us to strengthen the quality of our teacher education program. The mission of the School of Education is to prepare teachers who are Reflective Scholars, Instructional Leaders, and Global Citizens and to serve the community and profession promoting and facilitating best practice in education.

The Board meets each spring. Task Forces (Diversity, Assessment, Professional Development, Special Education, and Recruitment, Retention and Marketing) meet via small group and email throughout the year.
