A Letter from the Dean

Tracy Morris, Interim Dean

Dear Alumni and Friends,

As I come to the end of my first year as interim dean at CEHS, I am pleased with the progress of the College this year, including our continued contributions to WVU’s land-grant mission. In this magazine, you’ll learn more about the work we’ve done in schools and communities throughout West Virginia.

Our faculty are leveraging their expertise by providing programming and training for education and human services professionals, ranging from the implementation of dance education in elementary school classrooms to trainings for school personnel on becoming trauma-informed.

We have enhanced our Speech-Language Pathology Program to include training in telespeech therapy, a remote method of providing speech therapy that helps us reach areas in West Virginia that may not have access to speech-language pathologists. This not only benefits the state, but also our students, who will now enter the job market with this unique experience.

Through the support of a donor with a passion for social justice, our social studies education faculty have launched a new student organization to inform and train pre-service educators and community members to engage in equity work. This organization will reach students across the University, and we look forward to seeing its impact.

As always, our faculty, students and alumni exemplify the talent, skill and passion needed for success in the education and human services professions. We are proud to share their stories with you and to demonstrate the significance of their work.

Warm regards,

Dean's signature
