The mission of the Educators College at Marian University is to prepare teachers who can transform the lives of their
students, families, and the community embodied by the theme: Teacher as Model and Mentor: Ever Teaching, Ever Learning,
Marian University’s elementary education program is honored to be nationally recognized by the Association for Childhood
Education International (ACEI). We focus on a holistic approach to education
centering on each Marian University student’s unique learning profile while integrating instruction with critical 21st century skills.
Marian University students’ field experiences begin their first year and they are placed in a variety of settings over four years,
such as suburban, township, urban, private, public, charter, and faith-based schools. Marian University students also work with a
wide range of K-12 students from diverse backgrounds, including ethnicity, socioeconomic status, language, race, gender, ability,
exceptionality, and religion.
