Welcome Message from the Dean

Suzanne LeeThe faculty in the School of Education have a long and successful history preparing individuals for careers in teaching, administration, and counseling in both public and private schools.

We place high priority on school-university partnerships and have strong relationships with both urban and suburban school districts.

These valued partnerships provide candidates with the best opportunities to participate in meaningful clinical experiences as they prepare to become classroom teachers, school administrators, and/or school or community agency counselors.

Whether in a clinic or classroom setting, the conceptual framework of the School of Education provides the basis for understanding what it means to be a candidate in education at Saint Xavier University. The conceptual framework guides candidates to become scholars, lifelong learners, leaders, and reflective practitioners dedicated to the pursuit of excellence. It is within this context that faculty engage students in vital preparation to become teachers, administrators, and counselors.

The School is accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) at the initial and advanced levels. In addition, all programs in the School of Education are approved by the Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois Board of Higher Education.

The School has aligned its programs with the high professional standards set forth by the NCATE and its constituent specialized professional associations. By adhering to these standards, we hope that you feel confident in what we already know to be true, that the School is committed to preparing professionals who can teach, administer, or counsel in schools and community agencies of the 21st century.
