We prepare teaching candidates to work with students who have a wide range of learning, cognitive, emotional, and physical abilities through practices that nurture and develop equity and inclusion for all students.
Teacher candidates in the Special Education program at the Westminster College Salt Lake City have a strong desire to make a difference in the lives of students and serve as advocates for equity and inclusion.
