Welcome to the School of Education!

Antioch College’s first president, Horace Mann, was an abolitionist and social reformer considered the founder of public education in the United States. He believed that a well-educated populace was essential to a strong democracy. Over 170 years later, Antioch University’s School of Education (SOE) continues this commitment to education, while deepening, diversifying, and expanding our role as a provider of innovative graduate programs that center equity, inclusion, justice, and societal transformation.

Our mission statement reads: The School of Education nurtures deep, transformative relationships with students, schools, and communities in order to foster diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning. We build coalitions that disrupt existing power structures and imagine new possibilities to advance justice, innovation, and positive change. Further, our Vision is “to advance/create a more just world through caring, collaborative, and transformative education.”
The SOE provides graduate programs that meet students’ professional and personal goals in context, including PreK - 12 schools and systems, higher education institutions,  nonprofit and governmental organizations, and businesses. SOE degree programs and certificates enable learners to serve as teachers and professors, leaders, program and curriculum developers, innovators, thought leaders, consultants, and community organizers and advocates. As described in the Catalog, SOE offers doctoral and master’s degrees and professional certificates across a variety of specializations and employs on-campus, field-based, hybrid, and fully remote options. SOE offers classes that are learner-centered, problem-based, experiential, individualized, and hands-on. We stress critical thinking and the interrogation of educational systems that perpetuate inequitable practices and outcomes.
