Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the College of Education and Professional Studies

We are dedicated to preparing ethical, reflective practitioners and collaborating with schools and other partner organizations in the region.  Our programs are recognized for their emphasis on integrating theory with practice, and several are nationally accredited.

The Walker D. Wyman Education Building is home to the College. Its heart is a large, open Educational Technology Center, surrounded by twelve glass-walled technology enhanced classrooms. Our Speech, Language, and Hearing Clinic provides services to area children and adults with a variety of communication disorders, while the Western Wisconsin Partnership provides professional development for child welfare workers in 24 counties. The College also is home to the University Preschool. 

The College reaches out to the community by sponsoring events such as the University Health Fair, the Turkey Trot 5K run/walk, and Dance Theatre performances as well as by providing tutoring and hearing screenings to students in region schools. All departments and programs have student organizations.

We value our relationships with our students, alumni and community members and partners. I encourage you to visit our campus in person.
