Our Faculty and Staff

The University of Tulsa is a private, independent, doctoral-degree granting institution, whose mission reflects these core values: excellence in scholarship, dedication to free inquiry, integrity of character, and commitment to humanity (University of Tulsa Mission, 1999). These core values are also central to the mission, operations, and outcomes of both the School of Education and Educational Studies (housed in the Henry Kendall College of Arts and Sciences).
