Mission Statement

“Set out for any place where the work is great and difficult” — Father Samuel Mazzuchelli.

Rooted in the Sinsinawa tradition, the School of Education at Dominican University improves the human condition through education. We develop and support effective educators who transform ideas and challenges into solutions that impact diverse schools and communities to create a more just and humane world.  We respond to the challenge that with knowledge comes ethical responsibility. The Dominican educator is passionate and prepared to “go where the work is great and difficult.”

In the spirit of caritas et veritas, the School of Education at Dominican University will be a distinctive institution recognized for preparing effective educators who reach beyond the classroom and honor educational equity as a basic human right and source of empowerment. Through signature programs and strategic alliances, we will develop passionate teacher-leaders who advocate for their students and families in a rapidly changing educational landscape.
