Mission Statement


As a unit within the land grant institution of Utah State University, we are part of one university, geographically dispersed. We acknowledge and appreciate the complex contexts that shape our work and we are committed to furthering the cause of equitable educational opportunity for all students. We aim to prepare students for informed and influential participation in local and global communities.

The mission of the School of Teacher Education and Leadership (TEAL) is to inspire and prepare reflective and effective educators, scholars, and leaders through

student-focused learning experiences;
diverse knowledge and thought;
school, community, and global engagement; and
research and innovation that inform practice.
