Overview

The School of Education & Human Development is a vibrant community of practicing educators and counselors, educational leaders and researchers who have a strong service ethic locally, nationally and globally and a dedication to excellence.

Mission

Leadership for Educational Equity

We prepare and inspire education and mental health leaders to have a profound impact in fostering student opportunity, achievement and success in urban and diverse communities.

Our Role in the Community

We are committed to developing forward-thinking educators and counselors who have a deep sense of inquiry, a concern for pressing social problems, a great desire to live their lives purposefully, a passion for giving back to the community and the cultural competence needed to serve urban and diverse populations.

Diversity and Inclusion

At the School of Education & Human Development (SEHD), we believe strongly that all students—diverse in race, ethnicity, economic resources, language, fluency, abilities, geography, first-generation status, age, gender and sexual identities—deserve the opportunity to learn. To advance our mission and meet the changing interests of our local and global communities, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion has been established to create positive momentum towards educational access, equity, and success.

Accreditation

The School of Education & Human Development is fully accredited by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE), the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs (CACREP) in Agency Counseling, School Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy, and the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) in School Psychology.
