About CEHD Reads
Can one person make a difference?
As part of this process, the college community is joining our 2013-2014 first-year students in reading The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoir, by Kao Kalia Yang. The featured book for CEHD Reads is a memoir of her family’s journey from Laos to St. Paul, a story that is familiar to thousands of Hmong families who fled massacre in Laos after collaborating with the United States during the Vietnam War.
As with past CEHD Reads books, The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoir addresses the shared inquiry: Can one person make a difference?
We are eager to share the ways that we, as a college, make a difference through transformational research, top-quality education, and partnerships with our community beyond campus.
CEHD’s First Year Experience Program
The College of Education and Human Development offers a two-semester curriculum focused on the social, academic, and institutional needs of first-year students. This program builds intentional pathways to college by introducing students to ways of thinking in different academic disciplines, strategies for collaborating with others, and resources for discovering their own strengths. These transition tools are integrated into first-year curriculum, built around a First Year Inquiry course and Learning Communities.
