http://pixvid.me/UpliftSociety Education is about uplifting all members of society rather than personal gain, noted medical researcher and educator Dr. Michael Byrd told Wheelock students at the College's 2011 Convocation. Byrd called on students to follow the lead of Wheelock founder Lucy Wheelock and take up the challenge of ensuring that they use their education to better society and help the country's most vulnerable citizens.

Lucy Wheelock, convinced that early childhood education was the solution to many of society's problems, Lucy Wheelock also committed her students to learning about the lives of poor immigrant families in Boston's Portuguese, Filipino and Italian neighborhoodsâ€"an early foundation for Wheelock's continuing involvement with multicultural education and with its neighboring communities.

Over the years, the College has continued to take the lead in early childhood education and has broadened its vision to include service to children's social and health needs.

As Wheelock's mission has maintained this focus, the College's reputation for innovation and leadership has deservedly grown. In achievement and in reputation, Wheelock is among the nation's finest higher education institutions in preparing teachers, social workers and child life professionals for service to children and families.
