Alumni Survey

On behalf of the School of Education Faculty, we send our greetings and hope that each of you is enjoying a rewarding and satisfying professional and personal life. As an alum of a School of Education graduate program, we are contacting you to request your participation in a follow-up survey. In 2006, the School of Education received national recognition from the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). NCATE requires that we conduct follow-up studies with alumni to determine the impact of our conceptual framework of the Leading Teacher Program (LTP). All programs in the School must address the conceptual framework as appropriate for the major including teaching certificates, counselors, school psychologists, reading specialists, educational administrators, etc. The LTP conceptual framework comprises three themes, Leadership, Diversity and Technology and five domains Learning Theorist, Curriculum Designer, Expert in School Context, Instructional Leader, and Master Practitioner.

We are now asking that you complete this follow-up survey by February 28, 2011. We ask that you participate in this very important activity to inform our efforts in continuously updating the conceptual framework that drives our professional education programs in the School of Education to achieve our mission:

The mission of the School of Education, as a renowned learning community for the mind, heart and spirit, is to guide the formation of moral and ethical educational leaders, to advance innovation in teaching and scholarship, and to foster social responsibility. Within the context of the Spiritan identity and University vision, we will accomplish our mission by exemplifying the scholarly and ethical standards of our profession as we provide meaningful learning experiences, support scholarship, and sustain mutually beneficial partnerships.
