An integral part of these programs is the emphasis on quality time in real classrooms, learning how to teach in real-world communities, using the most up-to-date technologies in our classrooms and laboratories, student research and experiential learning.

Meet the Dean

Dean of the College of Education and Human Services portrait In the College of Education and Human Services, we are preparing the next generation of educators, leaders, administrators and other human service professions, as well as those in American Sign Language interpreting and sport management. Our goal is to ensure our students are set up for success. You should also know that our graduates are highly sought after with more than 95 percent employed upon graduation.

One of the great benefits of being located in a geographically and socially diverse city like Jacksonville is that we are closely connected with award-winning schools, school districts and other organizations in our region. Through the partnerships we have with local public, private and charter schools, our students can experience a vast array of educational settings. Our students studying education, American Sign Language and school counseling benefit greatly from those connections, while our sport management students have opportunities to form relationships with many local professional and collegiate sports teams.
