These four issues represent the intersection of CEHD's strengths with society's most pressing needs.

Our strong leadership, a clear sense of purpose, and excellence across academic disciplines places the college on the leading frontiers of knowledge.

With a tradition of exploring the common good in uncommon ways, we are confident that CEHD will continue to improve lives into the next century.
