Mission Statement

Students studying

The Lynch School of Education at Boston College, a Catholic and Jesuit university, endeavors to improve the human condition through education and applied psychology.

We pursue this goal through excellence and ethics in teaching, research, and service.

We prepare undergraduate and graduate students to serve diverse populations in a variety of professional roles - as teachers, administrators, human service providers, psychologists, and researchers.

Through research, we seek to advance knowledge in our respective fields to inform policy and improve practice. As teachers, scholars, and learners, we engage in collaborative school and community improvement efforts locally, nationally, and internationally.

What unites our diverse work is the underlying aspiration to enhance the human condition, to expand the human imagination, and to make the world more just.
