School of Education Our Philosophy and Mission

The School of Education offers its programs within the College of Health and Human Sciences at Colorado State University. Our teaching, research, and outreach support the mission of CSU’s Land Grant and Carnegie I Research Institution status. Our guiding values are respect, collaboration, effective communication, inclusivity, autonomy, high standards, flexibility, and the pursuit of knowledge, as evidenced through intellectual thought, research, teaching, and productivity. Our mission is to use communication, leadership, and facilitation skills effectively in teaching, research and engagement, in order to empower and support prospective and practicing educators to become personally and professionally competent, effective, and caring community members.

Our faculty expertise spans diverse learning contexts and populations. We characterize ourselves by innovative instruction, equitable access, technology education, distance education, service learning, workforce development initiatives, workplace learning strategies, professional development, school partnerships, and rigorous research methodologies.
