Mission Statement  

The mission of the University of Rhode Island's School of Education is to prepare future professionals to be exemplary practitioners and scholars.  To achieve this mission, faculty seek to generate, use, and disseminate knowledge about teaching, learning, and human development and strive to establish and maintain partnerships for the purpose of addressing and resolving critical educational problems that impede and impact the learning of children and youth.
