Message from the Dean

Message from the dean Grace May Welcome to the College of Education and Human Services!

If you are interested in becoming a teacher, leader, school or psychological professional, we offer a broad range of nationally recognized and accredited programs (APA, COAMFTE, NCATE) at the undergraduate, post baccalaureate, and graduate level. Our programs, academically rich and grounded in the practice of our professions, are offered through a variety of delivery models to meet the needs and interests of students; traditional, online, weekend, and cohort based.

Faculty and students in the college are committed to serving others through a broad range of options such as teaching, leadership, police studies, and counseling. This dedication to service reflects the mission of the university and a central figure in our history, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. Our vision for graduates is that they are highly competent, socially conscious, reflective professionals committed to lifelong learning.

Our faculty are globally, nationally, and regionally recognized for their research and involvement in their professional fields. Most importantly, they are committed teachers and advisors who make themselves available beyond the classroom for questions, discussion, and guidance.

The majority of our programs involve field and clinical experiences where students translate theory to practice with supervision and support from university and community experts.

As the landscape for teacher and leader preparation evolves, the College of Education and Human Services is dedicated to active engagement in the process through research, continuous improvement of programs through assessment, and collaborative partnerships.

I welcome you to explore the opportunities that await you at the College of Education and Human Services. Whether you are starting out as an undergraduate seeking teacher certification, been teaching for years and are looking for that ‘next step’ such as leadership, or are interested in psychological services and research, our programs are designed to challenge and expand.

Grace May, Ph. D.
Dean of the College of Education and Human Services
