Contribute to a just and equitable world
Teaching and educational systems are impacted by global, political, social, economic, and cultural change. Therefore, teachers and other professional school personnel, who have significant influence and impact on their B-12 students, must emphasize the importance of embracing the political nature of education, developing a sense of service to the community, and working to become advocates for all learners and their families. When educational professionals see themselves as citizens of the global world who work for inclusion, diversity, and access of opportunity for all learners, they model the importance of developing respect for each other as unique humans and affirm individual viewpoints and experiences. We strive for transformative experiences that motivate our graduates to advocate for their students, their communities, and the world.
