For more than 50 years, the College of Education & Human Development (CEHD) has experienced significant student and resource growth, been recognized for its development of effective teachers, increased external funding and assembled an internationally recognized faculty. The college has made great strides since its founding and our future is even brighter. For the CEHD to reach its potential in leading change on local, state, national and international levels, a clear and articulated vision is necessary. With this spirit, we created this strategic plan.
The college will develop and research strategies, policies and practices to develop and support professional educators to ensure success for all learners.
The CEHD will prepare practitioners, leaders and scholars who are committed to the advancement of individuals’ mental, intellectual and physical well-being across the lifespan.
The CEHD will sustain and enhance its presence as a leading public research institution that addresses the critical issues of the 21st century.
The college will strengthen its leadership in recognizing and responding to the complexities of cities and in modeling successful collaborative processes between universities and urban communities.
The CEHD will become a leader in globalized perspectives related to research, education and teaching, recognizing that the scope of our work and the students we serve extend beyond our borders.
