Our School

Well-Being at the SEHD

The three departments in the School of Education and Human Development collectively focus on well-being, the core component of our mission. Educational and Psychological Studies (EPS) focuses on emotional health and psychological factors; Kinesiology and Sport Sciences (KIN) promotes physical wellness, fitness, and sport; Teaching and Learning (TAL) fosters intellectual and educational development.

A special thanks to our alumni and friends who contributed this year! All contributions whether to annual giving, endowments, scholarships, or faculty support are deeply appreciated and vital to the School's growth.
