The vision of the College of Education 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. The fulfillment of these ideals calls for a commitment to academic excellence and advocacy through active engagement with shifting social and cultural contexts and advanced technological developments that shape the construction, interpretation, and dissemination of knowledge.

The COE will continue to develop professionals who meet the needs of all learners that may arise from differences in race, social class, language, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, health, ability, and religious and political affiliations.
