Our mission at the College of Education is to be a leader in Alabama and across the nation in teaching, scholarship, advocacy, and service by developing professionals with pedagogic and disciplinary expertise who advance the intellectual and social conditions of all learners in a globalized society.
The vision of the College of Education (COE) at The University of Alabama is to develop effective, ethical, and reflective professionals who advance the theme of the COE: Unite, Act, and Lead (UA Leads). This theme undergirds the four overarching ideals of the COE: Ideals of Fairness and Equity, Reflective Stance for Professional Practice, a Commitment to Diversity, and a Culture of Collaboration (https://education.ua.edu/about-us/conceptual-framework/). As part of our continuous improvement efforts, we review multiple measures from varied sources to share with prospective students, current students, alumni, and stakeholders.
The University of Alabama’s College of Education provides impact and outcome indicators based on the eight annual measures designated by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). These measures allow the EPP to provide information to the general public about EPP program outcomes and EPP candidates’ and program completers’ impact on P-12 learning.
