School of Education and Human Development

The School of Education and Human Development is a comprehensive, highly regarded center of excellence for the study and promotion of physical, psychological, and intellectual well-being in multicultural communities.

Among the School of Education and Human Development's remarkable recent achievements are an undergraduate degree program in human and social development; the Dunspaugh-Dalton Research Center for Community and Educational Well-Being; dramatic growth in the exercise kinesiology program, with a new premedicine track; a master’s program in community and social change; and a newly approved master’s degree program in nutrition for health and human performance.

School needs to be met by Momentum2 include two endowed chairs—including one to spearhead a new doctoral program in community research and action—and an endowed professorship for the counseling psychology program. Funds also will support student scholarships, new programs in nutrition, strengthening and conditioning, and other areas that complement the school’s holistic approach to enhancing well-being; and groundbreaking initiatives such as the Laboratory of Applied and Clinical Physiology, Community and Educational Research Center, and the Institute of Individual and Family Counseling. Support and scholarships will also be provided for master’s degree students associated with Teach For America.
