Vision and Mission

The guiding vision of Leadership and Instruction is to develop candidate graduates who are able to thrive and contribute in a rapidly changing society where the jobs and schools of tomorrow are not even defined today. We strive to be market responsive and forward thinking in terms of academic programs and the delivery of these programs. We are strategic in the quest for diversity. The Area of Leadership and Instruction is intentional in the desire to produce leader and teacher candidates who are technologically and philosophically current and who acquire a quest for a lifetime of learning. We also seek to impact both current students and the greater UWG community in the overall pursuit of personal wellness.

The departmental mission is to collaborate, educate and motivate and to provide a collaborative environment that empowers students and faculty for successful contributions to their professions and society.
