Mission

Home / About / Mission

ASU’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College creates knowledge, mobilizes people and takes action to improve education.

MLFTC faculty create knowledge by drawing from a wide range of academic disciplines to gain insight into important questions about the process of learning, the practice of teaching and the effects of education policy.  

MLFTC mobilizes people through bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs, through non-degree professional development programs and through socially embedded, multilateral community engagement.

MLFTC takes action by bringing people and ideas together to increase the capabilities of individual educators and improve the performance of education systems.
