The mission of the Wake Forest University Department of Education is to educate future teachers broadly to meet the challenges of 21st Century classrooms. Therefore, we engage in research and use contemporary learning theory to guide reflective reform of educational practice. We believe deeply in equal educational opportunity for all children. We commit to provide rich foundations in content and pedagogy and to prepare our teachers for caring and effective service in diverse pK12 learning environments. We work collaboratively to ensure the high quality of America’s future school, state, and national leaders who will enrich the communities in which they work.
