The faculty of the School of Education and Human Services (SEHS), in concert with our candidates, school partners, alumni, and the community, seek to prepare highly effective, professional, and socially committed educators and counselors who value the Jesuit traditions demonstrated through their own cura personalis, work towards social justice, and leadership through service. The mission of the unit is to prepare educators who possess content, pedagogical, and professional knowledge; use their gifts in the service of others; and demonstrate professionalism and leadership in their field.
