The College of Education

In light of the recent tragedies and events in the Charlotte region and elsewhere, the College of Education reaffirms our commitment to respect, safety, diversity, inclusion and acceptance for all. As the College of Education, we believe it is our role to help educate others about difference. We stand in support of any student who feel angry, isolated, or afraid. And we remain committed to open dialogue that is respectful and inclusive.
