A theme entitled "Education for Transformation" provides a conceptual framework that unifies programs at the Graduate School of Education. The mission of the University of Massachusetts Lowell is to meet the needs of the Commonwealth today and into the future by supporting the development of sustainable technologies and communities through its teaching, research, scholarship and engagement. The Graduate School of Education (GSE) contributes to this mission by educating new teachers and enhancing the professional development of those already in the field so that they may assume leadership roles focused on transforming the lives of children and the vitality of the region.
The GSE's commitment to "Education for Transformation" produces graduates who:
- Demonstrate excellent knowledge, judgment and skills in their professional fields.
- Promote equity of educational opportunity for all learners.
- Collaborate with other educators, parents and community representatives to support educational excellence.
- Use inquiry and research to address educational challenges.
The fundamental tenets of the school are excellence, equity, collaboration and inquiry.
Additionally, through its doctoral programs and the work of the faculty, the GSE advances research into leadership, language arts and literacy, as well as mathematics and science education.
