About the Graduate School of Education
The challenges of the 21st century are complex. Solutions call for thoughtful, knowledgeable leaders and creative, collaborative responses. To respond to this changing world, we are proactive in:
- identifying emerging issues;
- providing professional preparation and development programs; and
- helping practitioners understand and apply the most promising theoretical constructs.
Located in the heart of New York City, we have forged strong partnerships with public and private schools, other colleges and universities, business and government groups, and human service organizations.
We reflect the Jesuit tradition of academic excellence in a values-laden setting. High standards of scholarship are evident in all of our programs.
We strike a dynamic balance between theory and practice, and among research, teaching, and community service endeavors.
Faculty and student relationships are mutually supportive and reflect the belief that education is paramount in shaping the kind of society we desire by making the world a better place for all people.
