Learning by Doing

UVEI programs differ from traditional schools of education. Rather than emphasizing content and class time, our programs emphasize learning in actual schools and classrooms, work with mentors and coaches, and relevant and applied seminars.

Focus on Outcomes

For almost half a century, our mission has been to prepare, inspire and support teachers and school leaders to improve the quality of education for learners and their classrooms, schools, and communities.
