Message from the Dean

Dean Peggy KellyWelcome to the College of Education and Integrative Studies! The faculty and staff are united in their commitment to provide interdisciplinary and integrative learning opportunities for students. We offer undergraduate degrees, education credential programs, master's degrees, and a doctoral program.

Individuals who earn degrees, professional credentials, and certificates become outstanding professionals in education, social and public service, and other fields. We seek to prepare our students to become the region's future leaders to improve our communities.

Each of our Departments values the partnership that lies at the heart of the educational experience - the coming together of faculty and students in learning and in solving complex social and educational problems. As a College, we place heavy value on engagement with our community. We offer many opportunities for our students to establish meaningful relationships with the institutions and schools in which they will work and to experience learning through internships, field placements, and community service.

We invite you to explore each of our Departments and to get to know our outstanding faculty, staff, and programs. If you would like additional information, please consult the pages on this website or Kevin L.
