About the College of Education and Human Ecology
What We Stand For
We make lives better … together.
We’re pushing the boundaries to solve problems with bold purpose and informed resolve. And we do it by valuing a diversity of ideas – from visionaries hailing from big cities and small towns; from first-generation students and second-career dreamers; from people of all faiths, colors and genders.
Our strength is in our differences, and it’s how we’ll be a force for change.
in a continuous process of discovery that is solution focused and community based
in cultivating an academic community with global awareness and engagement
in transformative high-impact teaching, research, and service devoted to our students and community
in our plans, actions, and outcomes especially in the face of challenging circumstances and in the absence of agreement
in creating a community that is inclusive and equitable in representation, language, action, and behavior
- Don Pope-Davis, Dean
