UVA School of Education & Human Development Vision & Mission


To spur transformative change in education and human development through rigorous practice-informed scholarship and professional preparation.



We are scholars, teachers, and innovators whose work promotes human development across a broad array of settings, experiences and backgrounds.  We prepare leaders in the practice and study of education, health, and human services. We foster authentic partnerships linking application and scholarship. We build knowledge and tools for its application. And we shape practice and policy to achieve important societal and personal outcomes.
