Our Mission Statement
The UNC School of Education is committed to realizing the transformative power of education, and — in turn — is redefining what it means to educate. Education has the power to break down barriers, lift up individuals, and empower communities to rise and thrive. To that end, we inspire educators to lead; to think creatively, act with passion, and strive toward equity for all.
Uncovering new understandings, developing new knowledge about learning and teaching is at the heart of our research enterprise. We are a community of scholars devoted to the pursuit of conducting core educational research and to helping build the next generation of academic leaders who will carry this work forward.
