The awarding process will be determined by the Faculty Development Committee and consider how proposals advance the vision and missional commitments of the GSOE:
- Vision: Guided by social justice and advocacy, we will reimagine education to disrupt inequities and to meet the future needs of students and communities
- Mission: Our mission is to prepare administrator, counselor, and teacher leaders who advocate for educational equity and access, grounded in scholarship that advances innovation and addresses community-based needs in P-20 schools.
