Our Mission

The mission of the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is built on the three pillars of the academy: Teaching, Scholarship, and Service. A commitment to high standards in each of these areas enables the college to be responsive to community, regional, and state needs while addressing national and international concerns. Through teaching, scholarship, and service, the college strives to prepare outstanding teachers, educational leaders, and other professionals in related domains, while developing viable public and private partnerships which systematically improve education. This mission, being fundamental and timeless, represents the professional and ethical imperative of the College of Education and Human Development to be attentive to the needs of contemporary college students and to the challenges of serving a diverse, modern society.
