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.


Leadership for Educational Equity

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.


A leading school of education providing national expertise on educational issues and socially-just solutions for urban and diverse communities. Through innovative research and partnerships, we strive to be passionate agents of change, inspiring upcoming generations to learn from the past and shape the future.

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.


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.

The School of Education & Human Development offers three doctoral programs, one educational specialist degree, master’s degrees in seven program areas as well as undergraduate degrees with teacher licensure through a partnership with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.  We offer a variety of endorsements and certificate programs as well. Students may pursue a variety of state licenses for teaching and school administration or may elect to earn these licenses without pursuing a graduate degree.
