Why Stritch?

"My mission is to prepare teachers to transform their organizations and their communities, by placing an emphasis on their developing the knowledge, skills and dispositions to work with/teach students with special needs while incorporating a pattern of sustained mentoring to the pre-service educators. Likewise, Stritch transforms students’ lives, so they can then create transformation in their own organizations through leadership,learning, service and research. Students come to Stritch because of its strong traditions of teacher preparation and mission to build strong communities. "
