Professional Excellence
Faculty & Staff value professional excellence in teaching, research, and service. Faculty & Staff are devoted to the perpetuation of serious inquiry, creativity, critique, accountability, and the notion of giving our best efforts to our candidates, the university, and the marketplace.

Faculty & Staff value, appreciate, and embrace difference as it relates to culture, age, gender, race, ethnicity, language, religion, national origin, philosophical, educational and sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and family configuration. We are committed to perpetual reflection on all the issues related to diversity.

Faculty & Staff value, encourage, and promote the idea of faculty and candidates (inside and outside of the college and the institution) working synergistically together to construct, deconstruct, and re-construct knowledge, practices, and policy.

Faculty & Staff value equity, fairness, honesty, respect, and compassion among the staff, faculty, and candidates in the pursuit of teaching, service, and research endeavors. We commit to increasing access to equal opportunity in all College of Education initiatives.
