The School of Education is comprised of a community of educators dedicated to improving the quality of education throughout the state of Alaska. The mission of the School of Education is to prepare educators and support the lifelong learning of professionals to embrace diversity and to be intellectually and ethically strong, resilient, and passionate in their work with Alaska’s learners, families, educators, and communities. Our programs for professionals emphasize the power of learning to transform people’s lives. Across the university, faculty members teach professional educators to work in diverse settings, to form and sustain learning partnerships, and to provide learning opportunities across the life span. We are confident that this preparation will result in educators’ significant contributions to society.
