About the Programs

Vision Statement

The Professional Education Program at Northern Arizona University seeks to prepare educational leaders who create tomorrow's opportunities for young people: opportunities to learn and opportunities to improve their lives, their communities, and their prospects for the future. We strive to create a web of inquiry, exploration, and dialogue - through direct personal interaction and mediated by technology - that invites all members of the education community to come together to use discovery, innovation, and collaboration to improve people's lives through education.
