Dean’s Welcome

Accept my warmest welcome to Duquesne University of the Holy Spirit! The School of Education is pleased to extend this welcome to the Board of Examiners team from the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and representatives from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) who are visiting campus.

Our Mission and Identity statements capture well our commitment to preparing educators whose professional practice illustrates social justice in the Spiritan Tradition of Caring.  Thus, we value the accreditation process as a vehicle for serious reflection and engagement by the entire Teacher Education Unit at Duquesne University.

We fully expect the results to extend and enhance our internal efforts to ensure our program graduates fulfill their individual professional potential by engaging in   purposeful practice that results in transformative education for children and youth in P-12 school settings.
