This is a time of extraordinary circumstances. Educators in K-12 and higher education are being asked to quickly pivot to fully-online teaching and learning platforms for millions of students across the nation. The compassion and leadership that education professionals display in addressing and adapting to these rapid changes, while continuing to provide a quality education to diverse learners, is nothing short of heroic.
Educational equity and access are critical now, more than ever. Delivering research-based pedagogies; providing access and opportunities to underserved populations; innovating in educational technology and online programs—these have always been a part of our College’s mission. We are a family. We are here for you and prepared to help you reach your personal educational goals and meet the growing needs of learners around the world.
