The Morgridge College of Education, ranked as one of the best graduate schools in the nation, is committed to improving our communities and the world around us. We believe in positive social change, inclusive excellence and unleashing the power of learning. We prepare professionals for transformative careers as educators, innovators and leaders. Our diverse and flexible programs are designed to help students pursue their passions — online or in person.
At the Morgridge College of Education, social justice is at the core of our community. Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion goes beyond theory. It is woven into the fabric of the College with a commitment to underserved populations in tangible, real-world ways.
We're dedicated to going beyond words and taking action against racism and discrimination. Leaders across the College have worked collaboratively to continue existing efforts and initiate new efforts to effect change within the College, the academy and the broader community.
Our goal is to improve the lives of those who have been marginalized due to their backgrounds. Developing and scaling effective solutions to inequities requires breaking down barriers between disciplines and systems, and actively partnering with communities.
Rachel Riley, Master of Arts in Higher Education, Class of 2020
It's my peers who've pushed me the most by sharing their lived experiences and perspectives, inspiring me to rise to the occasion of dismantling systems of oppression in higher education. As I look to life after this degree, it will be my colleagues to whom I will turn when challenges and opportunities arise, seeking critical thought and collaboration about how to move forward.
We subscribe to the philosophy of learning by doing, with a major emphasis on opportunities for hands-on research and work within communities.
