Transformative Learning

A Transformative Approach to Education

The extraordinary educational programs of the School of Education (SOE) go beyond the classroom, beyond the lecture, and beyond the book. They take students to new heights of knowledge, new levels of skill, and new degrees of multicultural awareness. This is the life-changing power of education.

Through access to experiential learning that includes internships, field placements, practicums and hands-on research projects, our students learn not just by listening—but also by doing. They form one-on-one relationships with faculty that go beyond the traditional student-teacher framework, allowing students to learn with faculty as much as they learn from them.

By engaging with our innovative, internationally-renowned faculty, students develop a clearer picture of the challenges and opportunities facing today’s educators. And persistent exposure to diverse communities, voices and perspectives helps ensure they will go on to foster educational and social equity throughout their careers.
