Our close-knit community of teachers, researchers, and lifelong learners is uniquely suited to cultivate the next generation of leaders. We immerse our students in robust practicums - the backbone of our programs. Our graduates stride confidently into professional roles as teachers, counselors, school psychologists, language pathologists, principals, and superintendents.
