School of Education & Social Policy
“Merrimack’s School of Education & Social Policy offers dynamic, responsive and focused programs that prepare you for success in the field. Our faculty have extensive scholarly and PreK-12 experience.” - Dan Butin, Ph.D., Dean, School of Education & Social Policy
Our graduates are teachers and leaders who collaborate, reflect and make an impact. We emphasize:
- Deep learning. Education is transformational. Our classrooms, our courses and our passion are all grounded in the knowledge that learning matters.
- Bringing theory to life. Knowledge and practice must inform each other. We connect books with classrooms and ideas with actions.
- Making a difference. Education can change our classrooms, our schools and our communities. We prepare educators who understand that schools play a key role in a diverse and democratic society.
Dan Butin, Ph.D., the Founding Dean of the School of Education and Social Policy, has been named one of the top 100 “Public Presence” Education Scholars of 2013.
