Leadership through interdisciplinary teaching and learning...

The School of Education offers academic programs leading to bachelor's and master's degrees that meet both initial/professional and professional certification requirements of the State of New York.  Our programs are approved by the New York State Education Department and we are proud members of the American Association of Quality Educator Preparation, anticipating AAQEP Accreditation in early 2022.  All courses are designed for students to achieve competencies identified by local P-12 school district personnel and prescribed by the New York State Education Department.

Our Mission
To prepare teacher leaders with the pedagogical content knowledge and skills to educate learners in diverse and socially just classrooms.  

Our Vision
To empower educators who use their training to build equitable and inclusive learning communities in and outside of the classroom.
