At the Morgridge College of Education, we believe that education serves as the foundation and means for transformation within society. Our graduates, who reside around the world, hold prominent positions and leadership roles within their communities, allowing the ideals of Morgridge to be spread on a global level. We seek students who will perpetuate this pattern and continue our mission of promoting positive change.

Our Mission

The Morgridge College of Education’s mission is to be a force for positive change in the lives of individuals, organizations and communities through unleashing the power of learning.

We accomplish our mission in four ways:

  • Preparing highly competent, socially responsible, ethical and caring professionals to promote learning in diverse settings
  • Actively reaching out beyond our College to engage in learning partnerships with others
  • Contributing high-quality research to our respective fields
  • Modeling excellence in all of our own educational programs

Our Vision

The Morgridge College of Education will be a global leader in innovative and effective approaches for promoting learning throughout the lifespan.

Transcending traditional ideas about education and schooling, we will embrace a new, comprehensive vision of learning as a lifelong activity that involves the whole person and can occur through a variety of methods, anywhere and at any time.

We will promote educational change and social equity and will provide leadership for the improvement of education, mental health, and information services and systems.
