The Early Childhood, Elementary and Literacy Education Department is committed to preparing critical professionals who can improve the lives of children, youth, and adults by implementing effective care, education, and literacy programs. In order to meet this challenge, our students build a strong knowledge base through inquiry and action research, develop skills and dispositions as reflective and caring practitioners, support and enhance systems that demonstrably include and respect all children, youth, adults, and their families, and provide professional leadership on local, state, and national levels. The department's work reflects our commitment to the "Portrait of a Teacher," the "Portrait of a Literacy Educator," social justice, and diversity.
