Realizing that education is the avenue for transmitting our cultural heritage to succeeding generations and that modern advances should be incorporated with successful techniques of the past, the education faculty of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor accepts the responsibility for teacher preparation for each candidate as follows:
1. Acquire the knowledge to thrive in today's challenging classroom;
2. Mold valuable attitudes;
3. Develop effective leadership characteristics; and
4. Influence the dynamics of the total community.
Successful completion of the challenges offered by the faculty should enable every student to become an excellent teacher. In implementing this mission, the University maintains a close relationship with the public schools in order to familiarize students with school procedures and to prepare them for entry into the teaching profession.
