EDUCATION DEPARTMENT MISSION

Education Department Mission Statement
True to the Jesuit tradition of preparing teachers in education, the department focuses on developing critical thinking, reflective decision-making, and service orientation to promote the general welfare of individuals in the local and global communities.  Through collaborative planning and research, the department pursues a future in which educational institutions become communities of inspired leaders.

Creighton?s pre-service education students participate in a liberal arts and a professional studies program.  The liberal arts provide a broad knowledge base, establish values, and instill an appreciation of cultures.  The professional studies programs develop competence, wisdom, and compassion.

Guided by the desire for excellence, the department has a commitment to continuous examination of the curriculum and a commitment to exemplifying the best methodologies for preparing professionals for positions of leadership in the educational community.
