We are CHANGEMAKERS. Are you?

We are on a mission, and we need your help. Here, we impact lives.

In our ever-changing world, every interaction is a chance to make an impact. In CHSE, we are not side-line sitters; we are heart changers and we leave an imprint – not a light one, but one that alters the landscape, challenges minds, forges new futures and reimagines the status quo.

Whether we’re educating the next generation, counseling a family, training physically, organizing big data, or leading organizations…we impact lives. So, we’re calling on you to join us. Someone out there needs you. Answer the call.



From Kinesiology to Information Studies, our programs are diverse. Whether your goal is to enhance student learning, promote health and wellness, help strengthen families, heal and care for people, or develop better workplaces, the College of Human Sciences & Education has a degree program for you.
