These are exciting times in the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences and we welcome you to become involved in the numerous opportunities and experiences provided by our faculty and staff. With a mission of “Empowering individuals to lead and serve our dynamic world,” we as members of the faculty and staff encourage students to become engaged in a variety of real world experiences in the classroom, in our local community, and across the globe. We live in an environment characterized by diversity. The knowledge gained and skills acquired in a variety of settings, including study abroad opportunities, will prepare you to positively impact those with whom you work. For both undergraduate and graduate students, the international experience is life changing. Faculty members and staff, along with students, are available to serve as mentors and value the relationships that develop during a student’s college experience at WKU.
