Secondary Education

We believe in a public education that advocates for learners of all backgrounds and works towards a just society. Our commitment is to engage our students in critical practice and reflection and develop habits of mind to transform teaching and learning.

Here you'll find information about the undergraduate and graduate programs we offer, information about our faculty, student resources, and more.
