Our Mission

The Council of Academic Deans from Research Education Institutions (CADREI) believes our institutional responsibilities rest on four premises:

    • Equitable access to high quality education is the cornerstone of a just society;
    • The survival of a free society depends on the effectiveness of its education system;
    • Education is essential to the enhancement of professional preparation;
    • The educational profession requires the development of effective partnerships with those we serve.

Accordingly, CADREI commits itself to:

    • High standards of student selection and professional preparation;
    • The conduct of inquiry and scholarship on learning, teaching, education, and related areas;
    • The improvement of instruction in professional education programs;
    • Enhancement of institutional capacity for research and dissemination;
    • The application of the results of scholarship in all professional preparation and service programs;
    • The improvement of education through efforts to influence policy and develop collaborative relationships with others.
