Saint Vincent College is an educational community rooted in the tradition of the Catholic faith, the heritage of Benedictine monasticism and the love of values inherent in the liberal approach to life and learning. Its mission is to provide quality undergraduate and graduate education for men and women to enable them to integrate their professional aims with the broader purposes of human life. The programs, activities and encounters that make up student life at Saint Vincent College encourage the intellectual gifts, professional aptitudes and personal aspirations of students to mature harmoniously.
The Education Department derives its direction and vitality from the mission statement of the College. As the College seeks to integrate professional ethics and goals with the broader purposes of human life, so the Education Department seeks to focus its field and classroom experiences on the development of teachers who understand the integral relationship of parents, family, school, and community to the general development of children. We view the becoming a teacher as a developmental process. Consequently, the Department's certification programs, activities, and field experiences encourage theoretical studies of curricula and child/adolescent development; induction into the conventions and evidence-based practices of masterful teaching; the nurturing of personal aspirations to serve and care for children; and the personal maturation into socially, emotionally, and intellectually well-adjusted educators who will make positive contributions to the schools and communities in which they teach.
