About the College of Education and Human Development

Dean Jean Quam

For more than 100 years, our faculty, students, staff, and alumni have had a deep and historic impact on society. We are driven by a sustained belief in the value of each child, each person, as an individual with unique talents and challenges; an understanding that research and collaboration with community professionals will lead to solutions that will improve lives; and a dedication to preparing educational and human service professionals to carry the values and knowledge discovered here into the world to make it a better place.  

Our college makes a real difference in people’s lives. Discover that difference for yourself.
