Conceptual Framework

The theme, Shaping Tomorrow: Ideas to Action, provides the groundwork for the University of Louisville 2007 Conceptual Framework for the Professional Education Unit [PDF]. It represents the unification and intensification of past College conceptual frameworks and aligns with the University mission, the College vision and mission, and the University's Quality Enhancement Plan developed for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).

The College's faculty and staff are committed to functioning as one college, with the vision of being a top-tier national Metropolitan College in teaching, scholarship, and stewardship. We embrace the University's mission of being a metropolitan research university committed to advancing the intellectual, cultural, and economic development of our diverse communities and citizens.

Thus, the CEHD's mission is to advance knowledge and understanding across disciplines and constituencies and to develop educational leaders who will inform policy, improve practice, strengthen communities, and address pressing social concerns. The College of Education and Human Development at the University of Louisville explicitly considers the important role of the contexts in which individuals live and grow. The College adheres to five key principles: social and human equity; high-quality instruction and professional services; life-long learning; research-based practice; and leadership and collaboration.
