Campus Sustainability Spotlight

November Spotlight: College of Education

The College of Education (COE) believes in giving back to society. Our mission is to develop quality educators who are “Teaching, Leading, and Learning in a Democratic Society.” This mission underscores our commitment to educating students to be increasingly responsible citizens. By enriching the lives of students, we hope they share their skills to improve their schools, neighborhoods, and communities.
