CEHD contributes to the cultural vitality of our community through regional partnerships and commitments to community engagement.
At the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD), we embrace this vision and use it to guide our work in promoting learning and development across the life span. Built upon the foundation established by the university, CEHD’s plan is guided by the notion that we will find innovative ways to best serve the needs of our stakeholders—our students, our community, our world, and our faculty and staff.
The university goal is to contribute to the cultural vitality of our community through regional partnerships and commitments to the arts, athletics, and community engagement.
CEHD's goal is to expand the number, scope, and strength of the College of Education and Human Development’s network of regional partners by:
- Creating a productive and enhanced collaboration with Virginia’s community colleges, focused on CEHD’s recent academic program innovations.
- Supporting a college-wide focus on making experiential, integrative learning opportunities universal across all academic programs.
- Cultivating innovative partnerships with industry employers who are committed to participating in the development of innovative approaches to applied professional preparation.
- Appointing a faculty and staff task force charged with the development of a comprehensive plan that covers all constituencies, including students, faculty, staff , and partner organizations.
