Message from Interim Dean Felicia L. Wilczenski
Welcome to the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) at the University of Massachusetts Boston. Thank you for your interest in our programs. I hope this website provides the information you need. There are a few things you should know about us.
CEHD collaborates with school districts, local colleges and universities, and community groups to provide learning opportunities in urban education. With its urban mission and global outreach, CEHD fosters students’ development of multicultural competencies while educating future teachers, counselors, school psychologists, K-12 and higher education administrators, as well as conducting theoretical and policy research about individual and organizational learning. Through its research and community engagement, CEHD faculty, professional staff, and students make significant contributions to the local, national, and international understanding and practice of education.
Please explore our website to learn more about our three academic departments, Curriculum and Instruction, Counseling and School Psychology, and Leadership in Education, that offer challenging programs for Massachusetts state educator licensure, Master’s and Doctoral degrees, Certificates of Advanced Graduate Study and Educational Specialization, as well as undergraduate teacher preparation. Four Centers and Institutes are associated with CEHD: Adult Literacy Resource Institute (ALRI), Center for Science and Mathematics in Context (COSMIC), Institute for Learning and Teaching (ILT), and the New England Resource Center for Higher Education (NERCHE).
The CEHD faculty and staff are committed to continuing the UMass Boston tradition of academic excellence, social justice and inclusion, and community engagement. We hope you will consider joining us.
