The Conceptual Framework encompasses the unit's commitments for preparing educators for the 21st century. The Conceptual Framework for the undergraduate and graduate programs establishes the shared vision for the unit's efforts in preparing educators who "facilitate the success of students" in P-12 schools. It provides direction for programs, courses, teaching, candidate performance, scholarship, service and unit accountability. The Conceptual Framework is knowledge-based, articulated, shared, coherent, consistent with the unit and institutional mission, and continuously evaluated.
