Meet the Dean
Our Christ-centered mission is to develop and empower dedicated professional educators committed to student learning in a global society.
Using the Spring Arbor University Concept as a foundation, the statement of purpose of the School of Education defines the function of our programs and curriculum. Teacher education is a major professional function of Spring Arbor, and one in which the principles of service to mankind as expressed in the Christian ethic have primary influence.
- A Christian perspective informs who we are and what we do.
- Our teaching and learning leads to competence in the domains of the conceptual framework.
- Transformational learning leads to the development of dedicated professional educators.
- We prepare students to be critical participants in issues of diversity, equity and global responsibility.
The education program at Spring Arbor University prepares students to teach at the elementary and secondary levels through the discussion and application of the key concepts and skills of teaching. Our curriculum applies psychological and sociological principles to the theories and techniques of education.
