College of Education & Human Sciences


Martin HattonHello, I'm Martin Hatton. As interim dean of the W’s College of Education and Human Sciences, I can assure you, if you are interested in exploring the art, science and application of learning, you've come to the right place. In fact, advancing learning both for personal development and career advancement is the college’s central theme. This theme is demonstrated clearly through the foundations established in the Center for Parent and Child Development (CPDC) and by the outstanding programming our students experience in each of our academic departments, the Department of Education, the Department of Health and Kinesiology, and the Department of Psychology and Family Studies.

You’ll find our academic programs are firmly established in the liberal arts and are designed to prepare service-oriented professionals with the critical thinking skills and professional capacity not only to excel in a changing environment, but to be the leaders who shape their chosen professions.

Student Goals First

The strength of any college is based on the success of its students. The mission of our college is to help you define your goals, establish a lifelong relationship between learning and goal refinement, and realize goal achievement through advanced learning, support and mentorship. The accomplished faculty and professional staff of the College of Education and Human Sciences are both able and ready to begin this work with you. 

Again, I encourage you to explore our center, our academic departments, and all that our college has to offer. Contact any of us to start the conversation about how we can begin the work, together, to help you achieve your goals.

We’re eager to hear from you!
