We extend a greeting on behalf of the faculty, students and staff of the Division of Education at Mayville State University. The challenge of continuous improvement and continued increasing enrollment has facilitated much change in the Division of Education. We continue to celebrate our past with a focus on the future, preparing teachers for today's classrooms through the processes of experience and reflection. As teacher educators, understand the importance of our role as an educator preparation provider to train future teachers with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to effectively teach all students.
We are eager to welcome the national accreditation team to North Dakota in the spring of 2020. As the state with the strongest economy in the nation, the second lowest population (approximately 700,000) yet greatest percentage of population growth, our educational systems occur in a distinctive context. MSU is one of the smallest, publicly funded 4-year universities in the nation; we value the unique mix of academia and small-town living. As such, we greatly anticipate the opportunity to demonstrate MSU's committment as the school of personal service.
Mission: The Division of Education is committed to creating a collaborative culture that frames the development of teacher candidates’ knowledge, skills and dispositions through intentional, dynamic, integrated, and diverse teaching and learning experiences that support personalized, professional growth to positively impact learners.
Vision: To be a leader in educator preparation through transformative, relevant programming, learner-centered pedagogy, and partnerships that enable unique opportunities for quality experiences supportive to learning and leadership.
