Dean's Message

Lynne Schrum, Ph.D.Dear Fischler College of Education students, alumni, and future students,

It is with great pleasure that I rejoin this excellent organization as Interim Dean of NSU's Abraham S. Fischler College of Education.

I believe that education is the foundation that will support a brighter future for Florida, the United States, and the world at-large. The Fischler College of Education’s mission is to prepare individuals who are ready to contribute to education locally while also making a difference to the larger society. Our college is proud to educate students for careers in leadership, supervision and management, teaching, and research. As a college, we will help to drive the conversation for educational reform in our community, our state and beyond our borders, as we utilize sustainable resources to advance education in a rapidly changing society.

It is my sincere hope that our students are well-prepared for their lives as teachers, practitioners, and educational leaders through training, professionalization, and innovations that match revolutionary changes in our field. The Fischler College offers programs that extend and connect to the broadest definitions of educational professionals. Through hands-on, technologically-oriented curriculum featuring practical outreach in local and global schools, our students will have a significant impact on the lives of individuals and communities.

At NSU's Fischler College Education, we strive to enhance the well-being and quality of life of all citizens through education; we are led by exceptional faculty members who are committed to student success. Our curriculum and our faculty offer diverse perspectives to shape students' minds and actions while increasing awareness in the pursuit of academic excellence, as they prepare for a 21st century career. We are the building block of education—the place that shapes lives. 

We hope you will join us in our mission.

Now is your opportunity to become tomorrow’s successful global citizen—ready to impact children and families for decades to come.
