Our School

Education should be a tool for transformation. For individuals. For communities. That is the core of Dean Laura Kohn-Wood’s mission for the University of Miami’s School of Education and Human Development. Building on the well-laid foundation of integrating educational, psychological, and physical wellbeing into formal education, established by former Dean Isaac Prilleltensky, Kohn-Wood intends to harness the immense talent, research skills, and know-how of her faculty, staff, and students to solve real-life problems.

From the Desk of the Dean – October 2019

At the SEHD, we engage in “Transformation through Education”. This isn’t just a tagline for us. Our pursuits include: Transformation in educational equity, transformation in the science of learning, as well as transformation in community engagement. We do this by taking seriously the current and potential interdisciplinary research that comes from having faculty expertise across physical, psychological and educational domains of inquiry.
