The College of Education fosters innovation and collaboration through teaching, learning, discovery, and transformative pedagogy.

Through working together, we impact the development of teachers and learners who are committed to advancing the growth of students and communities, and to building a positive foundation for a stronger and healthier future.


We embrace Indigenization and reconciliation, recognizing the diversity of values and perspectives, of all peoples.

We endeavor to expand upon pedagogical practices that acknowledge and make space for the cultural and linguistic diversity of our province.

We strive to be leaders of effective and innovative pedagogy, of curiosity-based research work, scholarly work, and artistic work, and of practice that has a sustainable impact locally, nationally, and internationally.

We respond actively and collaboratively to emergent provincial, national and international priorities, including those of the university, school divisions, Indigenous peoples, newcomers, and the Ministry of Education.
