STARTING BELL AS EDUCATIONAL NEEDS GROW AND TAKE CENTER STAGE, OUR MISSION MATTERS MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, WRITES DEAN BILL HENK Our mission has always mattered. It mattered for 50 years as a department and nearly 40 more as the School of Education. Now in our fourth year as the College of Education, OUR MISSION MATTERS MORE — more than ever before. We will continue to excel in teaching, scholarship and service in the years ahead. But the time has come for us to be even more present to our community. Most of all, our commitment to social justice calls us to do whatever we can to bolster struggling K–12 schools of all types, as well as our challenged mental health care systems. The College of Education also finds itself in a new era with a university president who is committed to civic engagement. In other words, this is our moment. Through extraordinary work like that highlighted in this issue of Mission Matters, we hope to take a rightful place as a cornerstone of our great Catholic and Jesuit educational institution. Please join us. Your efforts will be essential. We aspire to help others as never before; our Ignatian traditions of cura personalis and of magis — doing the more — demand as much. Society and its members are depending on us. For their sake, we cannot afford to fail in this vital mission. Sincerely, Bill Henk Dean of the College of Education Marquette University
