At the School of Education & Human Development, we’re impacting the future. We attract a large proportion of mid-career students armed with broad experiences and perspectives, who go on to infuse Colorado’s classrooms with diversity and wisdom. Professional Development Schools allow our aspiring educators to gain real-world, mentored experience before graduation. We partner with 26 schools in six metro area school districts to prepare exceptional teachers. Those meaningful partnerships have been sustained for 20 years. Working together, we transform schools and connect communities, inspiring positive change in education while helping youth excel. Our School also takes the lead in educating culturally competent counselors with state-of-the-art training — and then goes beyond. Our students obtain real-world counseling experience in the Student & Community Counseling Center and by collaborating with mental health organizations and schools statewide to support the growth and development of the individuals we serve. The School's research centers provide a forum for study and dialogue in topical areas, connect with the professional community and generate and disseminate findings that impact the lives of children and families.
