Western University Be Extraordinary The Campaign For Western

It is often said the world's future rests with our children and youth. In the Faculty of Education at Western University, we collectively seek truth, justice, equity, and peace in that future world. 

We believe that we have a moral imperative to nurture our children so that they may thrive. As such, with our research, teaching, and service, we seek to strengthen education and schools, which are powerful forces in counteracting the social inequities that threaten the well-being of children, families, and communities.

We invite you to support us as active collaborators in imagining and achieving a just society in which the needs of all people are more fully met.
