The Mission of Teacher Education at UBC

TEO Guiding Principles 2023-26: Vision and Purpose illustration

The Teacher Education Office (TEO) Guiding Principles 2023-2026 reinforces the Faculty’s commitment to inspire people, ideas, and actions through education for a more equitable and just world.

The Faculty of Education Strategic Plan: Learning Transformed 2019-2024 represents the Faculty’s commitment to fostering a community of learning that is grounded in the values of equity, inclusivity, diversity, and transparency and to redress the legacy of colonialism and residential schools in pursuit of truth and reconciliation.

We attend to the goals and recommendations expressed in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the Scarborough Charter, as well as priorities identified at institutional and local levels.

We seek to ensure inclusive, quality education for all and promote lifelong learning with guidance from the Report from the Task Force on Race, Indigeneity and Social Justice, the Task Force on Anti-Racism and Inclusive Excellence, the Indigenous Strategic Plan, the Inclusion Action Plan, and the Climate Action Plan 2030.
