Dean’s Welcome

Greetings Students, Alumni, Visitors:

I welcome you to join the College of Education and Human Development where we provide an array of learning experiences designed to address the academic, social, and wellness needs and interests of learners from pre-k through adulthood. We are sensitive to crises in our society and promote strategies focused on the health, safety, and welfare of students, faculty, and staff.

Our faculty and staff are diverse in their educational training, cultural background, experience, and interests. Through the expertise of faculty and staff, the College prepares undergraduate and graduate students to provide instructional and leadership guidance such that learners develop skills and dispositions to meet the challenges of diverse environments.

We follow a process for quality assurance through planning, monitoring, assessing, and refining programs and services. The feedback process for quality assurance involves assessing evaluations from stakeholders, adopting and or modifying practices based on lessons learned, and retraining personnel for meeting ever changing demands of the education profession.

The College delivers services based on its standards of best practice for all programs in conjunction with professional standards from accreditation bodies. The College has accreditation for its initial and advanced teacher education programs from the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), and is regionally accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).

Please continue to review our website to learn more about us. I look forward to meeting and working with you in your plans for a future in programs and services in the College of Education and Human  Development.

Tracy Harris, EdD
Interim Dean
