Dean’s Welcome

Greetings Students, Alumni, Visitors:

Welcome to the College of Education and Human Development website. Our core mission is to provide qualitative educational experiences for prospective teachers, school leaders, counselors, and other school personnel employing sound curriculum and innovative instructional technologies.   It is our belief that we need to prepare our students to be capable and highly skilled members of diverse workforce pathways with the social emotional competence to exercise positive global citizenship.

We encourage and promote excellence in research and the utilization of pedagogical best practices that impact the lives of students in the P-20 educational continuum of prekindergarten to undergraduate school, as well as students in our graduate and lifelong learning programs. Our faculty, staff and administration strive to provide a nurturing and supportive environment for all students from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.

Finally, the College of Education and Human Development readily accepts the challenge and responsibility to produce students who are workforce ready with the ability to serve as visionary leaders, team members who understand how to work toward a shared organizational mission, and who possess the critical soft skills necessary for effective communication and relationship building.  We look forward to the opportunity to serve.

Millard J. Bingham, Ph.D.
Associate Professor and Interim Dean
