The Department of Human Development & Psychological Counseling has adopted the RCOE Mission Statement and Vision Statement:
The Reich College of Education (RCOE) prepares graduates for leadership and outstanding service to the public in the fields of education and human services. This preparation includes a broad range of degrees at the Baccalaureate, Master's, Specialist, and Doctoral levels as well as licensure and certification programs.
The vision of RCOE is to enhance practice in the fields of education and human services by preparing graduates for leadership and outstanding service; partnering with the local, regional, national, and international community to identify and address educational and community needs; and cultivating deeper and broader understandings through research and theory development. We view ourselves as a collaborative community of practice which promotes excellence in teaching, learning, research, scholarship, and outreach, with a particular emphasis on global engagement, intercultural diversity, and issues of social justice. To fulfill this vision, the RCOE engages traditional and non-traditional students in rigorous and relevant coursework that utilizes cutting-edge technologies, diverse research and theory, culturally-relevant instruction, and robust career-based activity.
