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.
