Working in close cooperation with the Education Department directors in the 13 world divisions, the staff offers services to boards, administrators, and faculty of Adventist colleges and universities worldwide. The staff also provides support through the world divisions to educational leaders at union/ conference/ mission levels and to teachers in Adventist elementary and secondary schools to ensure that the Adventist philosophy of education and the principles of faith-and-learning are integrated into the life of each institution.

Through AMiCUS, the Department cooperates with Adventist Chaplaincy Ministries and the Youth Ministries Departments in nurturing the faith of Adventist students attending non-Adventist colleges and universities around the world.
