Mission and Objectives
The mission of the School of Professional Studies is to prepare students to be highly competent professionals in careers of education, health, and human services, who are also culturally competent professional leaders.
The school recognizes the critical role that technology plays in preparing students for education, health, and human service careers. The faculty is committed to a curriculum that reflects the important role technology will have on these professions.
The school actively contributes to the body of knowledge of the education, health, and human-services fields. Through applied research and scholarly activities, the faculty challenges students in scientific inquiry and performance-based practice. By offering continuing education for alumni and practicing professionals, they remain committed to life long learning in response to changes in the education, health, and human-service professions.
Departments in the School of Professional Studies are responsive and creative in providing best-practice teaching methods in each of their disciplines. Each department includes evidence-based experimental learning practices and interdisciplinary and collaborative efforts with other units within the university and the professional communities. The School of Professional Studies is on the way to becoming the leading education center for western Connecticut in the disciplines of education, health and human services.
