The Graduate School of Education and Information Studies (GSE&IS) at UCLA is dedicated to inquiry, advancement of knowledge, improvement of professional practice, and service to the education and information professions. GSE&IS develops future generations of scholars, teachers, information professionals, and institutional leaders. Its work is guided by the principles of individual responsibil­ity and social justice, an ethic of caring, and commitment to the communities it serves.

Faculty members and students of GSE&IS combine a passion and skill for cutting-edge research with an appreciation for its application in the widely diverse cultures and communities in which it exists. These communities serve as fertile training ground for students in all programs, through internships, research projects, summer placements, and teaching opportunities.

GSE&IS is committed to the highest-quality professional education, and to the application of research and scholarship to the challenges facing a diverse and increasingly urbanized world.
