University of North Florida


Welcome to the College of Education and Human Services! 


I am honored to serve as the Interim Dean during the 2022-2023 Academic Year and to be leading such an amazing team of faculty, staff and students!


The College of Education and Human Services is committed to developing life-long learners who contribute to their communities and succeed in a changing world. From becoming a teacher, school administrator, school counselor, or interpreter, to rising as a leader in the sport industry, we offer innovative and unique programs that will provide the tools for success to have a career in these fields. Our graduates become difference makers in professionally and personally rewarding careers, and our faculty are exemplary educators and researchers who are devoted to identifying and creatively solving problems that schools and other human service organizations face today. 


As a core value, UNF promotes diversity by embracing and accepting diversity and inclusion as core institutional values. The College of Education and Human Services shares with the education community of Greater Jacksonville a firm commitment for an on-going and growing inclusive and diverse environment. 


In the past few years, grant activity in the College has increased annually by 20% or more, and our college brought in over $5 million in FY2022 which accounted for almost 35% of the total grant revenue that the University received that year. We plan to continue to grow in the acquisition of external funding which will provide us additional resources to support our students and faculty. 


The College of Education and Human Services prides itself on partnering to make the world a better place and our work breathes life into UNF’s mission. We hope you choose to be a part of it!! I invite you to visit or reach out if you have any questions. 


Go Ospreys!
