About Our School

Mission and Vision

The mission of the College of Education and Professional Studies at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls is to support the development of teachers, school psychologists, school counselors, social workers, speech-language pathologists, and health and human performance professionals.  Our goal is to prepare professional practitioners through rigorous coursework and field-based practice so they know the content of their disciplines; have the knowledge, skills, values, and dispositions to facilitate positive change in students and clients, and are creative, reflective, and ethical practitioners who value diversity, promote social justice, and utilize empirical evidence to inform their practice.

  • Promote academic excellence through collaborative social, cultural and pedagogical practices.
  • Demonstrate best practices for teaching and professional practice as scholarly endeavors.
