Strategic Goals

CEHD Strategic Goals & Priorities


 

Achieve Equity in Education and Health Outcomes


From early childhood to adulthood, one of our nation’s greatest challenges and highest priorities is equity in access to and in the quality of health and education. All children, regardless of race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status, deserve access to schools with high quality and effective educators.

We commit to harnessing the power of research and higher education to foster teachers, administrators, community leaders, and community health experts to lead this charge.

We commit to prepare school administrators and leaders to proactively work against the overrepresentation of some ethnicities in special education classes, less academically rigorous pathways/courses, and school disciplinary programs.

We commit to preventing and eliminating disparities that manifest through increased rates of teenage pregnancy, low test scores, childhood obesity, adult onset diabetes, alcoholism, and high dropout rates.

We commit to disrupt existing relations between socioeconomic status, ethnicity, and health equity.

Improve Individual and Community Quality of Life


Quality of life is not only about physical health and activity, but also about mental and emotional health.

Approximately 20% of the U.S. population lives in health professional shortage areas. Few of these communities have a complete plan for coordinating services for individuals in high-poverty areas.

We commit to provide the tools to improve mental and physical outcomes to more individuals through increased programs, clinical studies, and professional development across the state.

Advance Teaching and Learning


In 2015, the State of Texas declared teacher shortage areas in language and literacy education, special education, and all specializations within science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

We commit to addressing these shortages by preparing passionate, dedicated professionals in education who demonstrate leadership, promote equity, advance knowledge, and improve quality of life.

We commit to examining the instruction within our own classrooms and advancing the scholarship surrounding effective teaching and learning. We will lead our students to develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to transform lives.

Our students experience learning in some of the most innovative places on campus and beyond thanks to our Global Education initiative.

We commit to providing a transformational learning environment for all our graduates.

Develop Transformational Leaders


Creating transformational leaders starts with opportunities to address real-world dilemmas. As a tier-1 research and land-, space- and sea-grant university, we are developing the leaders needed in Texas today.

We commit to partnering with organizations, communities, and schools to nurture these transformations. Locally, regionally and nationally, we will establish long-standing relationships with respect and value.

Whether in PK-20 leadership development, health and wellness, sport and rehabilitation, educational foundations, human resource development or research leadership for the next generation of academicians, we commit to examining effective ways to support leaders through local, international, and interdisciplinary partnerships.
