The mission of the Inclusive Education Department is to support and honor all learners and their families with a focus on English language learners and individuals with exceptionalities. We accomplish the mission by developing educators who can effectively teach individuals with exceptionalities while addressing the unique needs of learners with varying social, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds.    


In our pursuit to address the educational needs of individuals with exceptionalities and English Language Learners, Kennesaw State University's Inclusive Education Department forges ahead as a national leader, building the capacity of all schools to promote the educational success of every learner. The Inclusive Education Department is committed to the collaborative development of expertise in teaching, learning, and leadership through student-centered learning that is integrative and intentional. In cooperation with families, school systems, and community agencies, the department prepares teachers and school leaders to exhibit knowledge, skills, and dispositions that facilitate high levels of learning through educationally inclusive practices. Through an integrated research-based approach, programs are systematically created and implemented to transform teacher candidates’ worldviews, thus empowering them to become teacher leaders who are life-long advocates for learners, families, and communities locally, nationally, and internationally.
