About School of Education and Behavioral Sciences

School of Education & Behavorial Sciences



Our mission is to improve teaching and learning in a diverse, rapidly changing, and increasingly technological society by preparing and supporting candidates in constructing knowledge, increasing capabilities, and developing sensitivity and responsiveness to the needs of children, families, and communities in urban centers and rural environments. This program is designed to prepare graduate candidates for work with individuals growing up in urban areas with multifaceted problems in education, healthcare, childcare, law enforcement, and corrections.


It is our commitment to preparing highly competent educational practitioners that can address the special problems that they may encounter in urban experiences at the community, state, and national levels.

Goals &Objectives

Our faculty strives to anticipate the needs of ever-increasing opportunity gap that exists in education. From this need, the program has the objectives to:

Prepare candidates to understand and implement social justice and equity-based practices.
Engage candidates in critical self-reflection that helps them to develop equity-oriented dispositions.
Provide candidates with the knowledge and tools necessary to engage in transformative practices that lead to the transformation of complex educational systems in urban contexts and communities.
