Our program completers are

  • Able to demonstrate best practices in pedagogy and adult learning/andragogy.
  • Caring professionals who are disciplined and others-centered. They are skilled in communication and collaboration with diverse learners, colleagues, community, and other stakeholders.

The Lindenwood University College of Education and Human Services is committed to an open, diverse, and inclusive learning environment that nurtures the growth and development of all regardless of race, socioeconomic status, gender, language, religion, or sexual identification. The College of Education and Human Services believes learning is enriched by diversity of values, interests, experiences, and intellectual and cultural viewpoints and strives to promote and support a diverse and inclusive learning community of mutual respect, which encompasses the engagement of all involved—students, faculty, and the community.
