Vision Statement

The Edmund J. Gleazer School of Education is committed to being a premier Educator Preparation Program (EPP) that is visionary, innovative, responsive, and transformative.


Mission Statement

We develop educational leaders who practice an ethic of care and are agents for social change. We create inclusive learning communities that are reflexive and transformative. Supported by evolving technologies, we are process-oriented and purposefully work toward our goal to provide an innovative and cutting-edge program. We have an expressed and committed sensitivity to diverse learners. Our candidates learn to utilize a culturally-responsive pedagogy that meets the challenges of a global world.

The faculty is committed to professional development, and in turn, supports students in career-oriented paths of learning resulting in the development of competent professional educators. The Gleazer School of Education is dedicated to promoting visionary, innovative and responsive communities of practice.

The GSOE Conceptual Framework expands on the mission and identifies four domains that serve as cornerstones of the teacher educator program.  Faculty members purposefully move this model to practice and evidence that teachers who care about learners, reflect on instruction, and collaborate with others will have greater impact on student learning and motivation and will become successful leaders in the classroom.  This link contains supporting educational literature that aligns with the characteristics of our conceptual framework. 


Preparing and Supporting Effective Teachers Who

Care, Collaborate, Lead, and Reflect

Candidates develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to effectively involve learners, parents/guardians, colleagues, and the community.



Candidates prepare to facilitate instruction and assume broader leadership responsibilities to advance their profession.



Candidates analyze and synthesize from their academic and clinical experiences and articulate what they have felt, thought, and learned.
