Founded in the Catholic tradition and committed to the Dominican ideals of truth, academic excellence and openness to diverse world-views, the Division of Education at Molloy College provides a value-centered experience that embraces intellectual, ethical, spiritual and social development in an environment where academic freedom, a spirit of inquiry and respect for each individual's worth and dignity prevail. The professional education unit at Molloy College is committed to the preparation of outstanding teaching professionals with the dispositions, skills and knowledge required to meet the needs of all students they will have the privilege to teach. It is the responsibility and goal of the faculty to guide students through pedagogically valid and intensely challenging learning and service experiences that empower teacher candidates to serve as leaders in schools and communities. Faculty recognize that effective teachers have a solid foundation in the liberal arts and sciences, aligned with national, state and institutional teaching and learning standards.
This Conceptual Framework relates directly to Molloy College's strategic plan and is supported by the four pillars of Dominican life: Prayer, study, preaching and community which we interpret as:
- Spirituality and reflection
- Research and teaching
