Develop Skills and Dispositions to Educate Students with Disabilities
The mission of the Graduate Special Education Division is to prepare knowledgeable, reflective, caring, and competent educators who are exemplary teachers, life-long advocates for their students, and contributors to the field of special education. We seek to prepare educators who partner with and empower those with disabilities to live self-determined lives.
Our program embraces a strong belief in the competence of every individual, equal access to quality education, and social justice as the critical tenets of our inclusive philosophy. Inclusion is a right, not a privilege, and we believe that disability is part of the human condition. We seek to honor the voices of those with disabilities as a guide to our practice.
