The School of Education's mission focuses on the improvement of learning and teaching in educational settings. We value the importance of teaching and research within a major research university. Striking such a balance depends on three key ideas: focusing our research squarely on the improvement of educational practice, offering high quality programs of instruction for present and future educational practitioners, and collaborating directly with other educators to improve practice. The idea of this balance is incorporated in our mission.
To pursue this mission, three goals guide our decisions and actions. These goals call for the School to focus its work on issues of learning and teaching, offer exemplary programs of instruction, apply knowledge to improve educational practice, and increase diversity in staffing and curricula. In discussing each goal, we will first elaborate on the challenges from which it arises and then outline our recent improvements and new developments designed to achieve it.
Goal 1: The School of Education will focus its strength on issues of learning and teaching in educational settings.
Goal 2: The School of Education will create and maintain programs of instruction that are intellectually powerful, coherently organized, effectively taught, and valued by students.
Goal 3: The School of Education will create and apply knowledge to improve professional practice.

The Pharmacy profession has passed through many changes throughout history; from the traditional use of plants and other spiritual remedies to the highly advanced application of biotechnology and gene therapy. This great development in drug investigation and pharmaceutical exploration set new challenges for pharmacists to deal with and to make use of.
Over the past few years we worked very hard to establish a program which enables our graduates to become new asset in the healthcare system. The school is staffed with motivated and dedicated instructors who employ their knowledge and experience to facilitate the learning process and to stimulate students' interest and attention toward the program. Classrooms and laboratories are equipped with new and advanced equipments which support and serve the learning procedure.
And with the fact that our students come from different socioeconomic backgrounds and are highly motivated to pioneer and to serve their societies, this made our school acknowledged by public and private institutions and our graduates are highly recognized by national and international pharmaceutical companies. It is worth to mention as well that our graduates' performance in the national colloquium exam was outstanding with 100% passing rate and with highest scores attained.
