e promote knoledge, dispositions, and best practice in preparing our students Ior ork ith
individuals across developmental stages Ior careers in pre-school through post-secondary education.
e create and disseminate theoretical and practical knoledge to local, regional, national, and
international constituencies. e obtain external Iunding and develop sustainable research labs, clinics,
and centers. e respect social, political, and cultural diversity, and aIIirm proIessional values and
ethics. e provide and support access, expertise, course ork, degree programs, and services across
the university and NSHE. e encourage collaboration among students, Iaculty, other proIessionals,
and community members. e believe education provides the essential Ioundation Ior the Iuture
success and stability oI society.
%he College oI Education consists oI three departments, each ith a particular Iocus area oI study, but
ith missions that intersect in many ays to encourage and nurture cross-departmental collaboration
and research eIIorts ith partners, both inside and outside oI the university system.
COE CORE MI88ION
Partnerships and collaborations oIIer a sustaining innovation. Such actions, by
their very nature, give reason Ior continued groth. Colleges illing to innovate in
these ays have a bright Iuture. A illingness to evolve Irom the inside out can
get lead to inning ays.
Not open Ior discussion is a placard that ould be particularly distressing in a
scholarly community that should be devoted to Ireeheeling inquiry and open
debate.
hat should be paramount are signs that Iaculty see themselves as the solution. II
e on`t take important steps to guide our on destiny, then e shouldn`t be
surprised iI others step in. %he responsibility is ours to take charge oI our Iuture
and explore avenues that may prove IruitIul in supporting or enhancing our current
mission.
COE CHALLENGE
I ant to challenge all oI us ith and iI-then proposition.
I e move together ith a positive attitude, oIIering each other our mutual
support, %HEN e can be conIident about our collective capacity to succeed. A
philosopher and poet once rote,
hen it comes to the Iuture, the task is not to Ioresee it, but to enable it.
Our task is not to REPAIR but to DESIGN
