Commitment in Action
We’re more than you think.
Yes, we prepare teachers, and we are proud of our reputation as the flagship teacher education program in South Carolina and the region. We also prepare highly effective educational leaders and counselors who work in school and agency settings. But did you know that we also have exceptional programs in Athletic Training, Exercise Science, Family and Consumer Sciences, and Sport Management? Our undergraduate and graduate programs lead students to successful careers because we ensure that what we teach is relevant to the workplace, and that we challenge and inspire those who come to us. Check out our programs and see what makes us different.
The difference is found in our commitments.
We are committed to the tradition of excellence in leadership at the university, local, state, and national levels; to making a difference by preparing graduates who are critical thinkers, problem-solvers, and lifelong learners; and to preparing ethical leaders who value equity, diversity, and fairness.
We are committed to preparing individuals who are committed stewards of their professions, who engage in scholarship that advances and informs their professions, and who maintain the highest standards of professional integrity.
Our commitment is to create and sustain an environment that fosters collaboration and communication; to engage in partnerships that address significant issues and the changing needs of our democratic society; and to engage in partnerships that enrich learning and professional growth.
We are committed to innovation in faculty teaching, scholarship, and service; to fostering environments that encourage creativity and innovation to solve current and future challenges; and to programs, scholarship, and outreach that are proactive and responsive to meet the needs of our constituents and our profession.
