Molloy teachers are characterized by their depth and breadth of knowledge in the academic content areas and in professional education, their ability to engage others as a community of learners, their enthusiasm for teaching and their commitment to become reflective practitioners, as well as life-long learners. Therefore, the Molloy graduate can be described as a values-based professional helping students or groups of students to:

  • Clarify for themselves the nature of their own questions, in terms they can pursue
  • Interpret their findings, in relation to other knowledge they have generated
  • Pursue a course of action grounded in study, contemplation and reflection


To meet the vision of the education program, Molloy seeks to:

  • Identify, recruit and retain faculty who are eager to represent, support and promote the shared vision and purpose of the professional education program
  • Collaborate with arts and sciences faculty, who are committed to these proficiencies, in developing a strong content foundation for teacher candidates
  • Partner with P-12 schools to collaboratively design teacher education programs, coursework and field experiences
  • Develop comprehensive opportunities for our candidates to assimilate the core values as they become exemplary teachers of knowledge, skills and values/dispositions
  • Regularly assess core values and the programs based on them for continued growth and excellence
  • Utilize the appropriate technology for data collection and strategic planning
  • Embrace diversity and the quest for social justice
  • Integrate relevant and responsible technology into all professional activities
