A Message From the Dean
Sam Hausfather

I welcome you to Maryville University’s School of Education, providing leadership in educator preparation, not only for the St. Louis community, but for the nation as well. Our faculty and staff are proud of their history and commitment to prepare teachers for a democracy. Our beginning and experienced teachers are thoughtful, reflective practitioners; we prepare teachers and administrators that can be courageous leaders in today’s schools and society.

Maryville University is deeply committed to partnerships with schools and communities, as confirmed by the Models of Excellence award the School received from the Association of Independent Liberal Arts Colleges for Teacher Education.  Work with schools is at the core of all we do.  The Metropolitan St. Louis Consortium for Educational Renewal provides one way our teacher education community and that of Harris-Stowe finds strength in collaboration. Our partnership work focuses on simultaneous renewal, with special attention to issues of equity and access to knowledge for the entire St. Louis community.

I am committed to continuing our traditions of excellence in teacher and administrator preparation while strengthening our commitment of service to schools, the profession, and the most vulnerable students and communities.  I welcome you to join our community and affect eternity!
