Since its founding, the College of Education and Human Services has defined its mission as the preparation and support of educators who are competent and contributing professionals for diverse learning communities in northeast Florida. The faculty are engaged as active leaders and responsive partners in the study and improvement of teaching and learning within a pluralistic society. We are committed to developing life-long learners who contribute to their communities and succeed in a changing world. Our mission is to engage with our students and professional partners in experiences that promote the following.
Ethical and professional dispositions include honoring and embracing diversity, equity, and equality of opportunity. Ethical educators view themselves and others as valued members of a learning community. They model professional integrity. Active reflection on professional practice means that educators and other helping professionals are committed to professional renewal, self-assessment, and life-long learning. Programs and experiences encourage professionals to engage in reflective practice and self-assessment, take informed risks, and participate in the change process. Educators who value diversity are prepared to acquire and apply the tools, content, technology, and strategies needed to assure that all students realize their full potential. They work in partnerships among post-secondary institutions, community agencies, and P-12 schools with the goal of improving learning.
