At the BU Wheelock College of Education & Human Development, changing lives through education isn’t just a job, it’s our passion. A passion rooted in our commitment to social justice, diversity, and equity. We are dedicated to preparing outstanding professional educators, producing research that improves the practice of education, and providing practical assistance to our partners in the field.
We share Nelson Mandela’s assessment that “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” Our goal is to prepare our graduates to change lives.
Campaign Priorities & Initiatives
Through the Campaign for the Boston University Wheelock College of Education & Human Development, we seek to increase scholarship aid to support the recruitment of outstanding and diverse cohorts of future educators, as well as create endowed professorships for our world-class faculty. We are also seeking endowment for the Journal of Education and financial support for our unique approach to situated learning (seen in our Early Childhood Learning Lab, Mobile Lab, Durrell Reading and Writing Clinic, and the Trotter Professional Learning Collaborative). In addition, we aim to improve our facilities so they are both green and accessible.
