Mission & Vision

Translating research into practices resulting in a prepared and effective workforce and healthy communities that support well-being and economic prosperity.

Mission Statement
Conduct scholarship; support faculty, staff, and students engaged in research and development efforts; and create learning experiences within the context of education, workforce, and community development.

CETE is committed to developing a workforce of the future. To achieve this, some of CETE’s priorities focus on socioeconomic mobility, online learning, and the Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (REDI) Movement. This overview highlights just a few of the center’s priorities.

CETE is aligned with the core values and strategic objectives of the College of Education and Human Ecology which is advanced through five pillar initiatives.

The programs developed through these pillars enrich the education of students and accelerate the efforts of faculty and staff for local, national, and international communities to be transformed.
