The College of Education at Michigan State University works to create better educational opportunities for all people, especially those living in the most under-resourced areas of our state and nation. That is why the faculty recognizes a special imperative to support and address the challenges facing schools in urban settings.
The college has a record of successful partnerships in service to urban students and educators, and many efforts have been designed to help teachers and researchers gain the knowledge and experiences needed to affect positive change in urban contexts.
Recognizing that we are entering into a world of borderless higher education, where transnational knowledge flows are commonplace and necessary, the EAD faculty are actively engaging their students in the pursuit of worldwide education for the purpose of producing the next generation of world class scholars. Whether undertaking international research, sharing expertise with international peers, intentionally diversifying the EAD community with international scholars and students, leading educational experiences for MSU students in diverse international contexts, or serving the needs of educators, administrators, and policy makers worldwide, the EAD faculty is carrying out the call to live up to the world-grant ideal
within the land-grant tradition.
