Founded in 1968, the College of Education and Human Development serves to prepare students for leadership in a variety of educational settings. They embrace the University’s mission as a metropolitan research university committed to advancing the intellectual, cultural, and economic development of our diverse communities and citizens. Their programs enhance the organizations and communities in which they grow and develop, promoting the highest levels of learning and social, emotional, and physical health and well-being for all children, individuals, and families.

Their mission is to advance knowledge and understanding across disciplines and constituencies and to develop educational leaders who will inform policy, improve practice, strengthen communities, and address pressing social concerns. They prepare students to be exemplary professional practitioners and scholars; to generate, use and disseminate knowledge about teaching, learning, health promotion and disease prevention, and leadership in public or private sector organizations; and to collaborate with others to solve critical human problems in a diverse global community. The College continually seeks to improve the quality of life for all in our metropolitan community, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and the nation.
