Division of Education

In an era of crescent globalization, transformative educators are looking for effective ways to meet the academic needs of linguistically and culturally diverse students enrolled in compulsory educational settings. At the Division of Education (DOE), courses and assignments are designed following the idea that the quality of teaching and learning are enhanced when educators, students and parents work together to ensure exemplary practices, student achievement, and active involvement. Faculty and staff are certain that linguistically and culturally responsive education will reinforce a free and democratic society as well as to solidify the way teachers develop their methodology; the mastery students must obtain of their knowledge; and the sage parents must have of education.
