Dean’s Message

Greetings from the Office of the Dean for the College of Education, Humanities and Behavioral Sciences (CEHBS).

The College of Education, Humanities and Behavioral Sciences is the largest academic unit in the university. Our slate of degree offerings within the five academic departments include one doctoral, one education specialist, ten master’s and twelve bachelor’s degree programs, with a number of concentrations within the bachelor’s and master’s degree programs. CEHBS is home to many co-curricular centers that support our degree offerings, students’ learning experiences, and the community. Of great academic importance is the role this college plays in providing all undergraduate students with the general education foundation in writing, speech, foreign languages, visual and performing arts, health, and physical education, and the writing support provided through the Writing Center. We are proud to be the heartbeat of the university.

Faculty and department chairpersons, together with the dean, ensure rigor and integrity of our programs as well as their fidelity to the mission of AAMU and commitment to the community we serve. Academic programs are of the highest quality, and they prepare our graduates to be socially aware and insightful change agents. Take some time to visit our website and learn more about the accomplishments of faculty and students and the wide array of accreditations earned by programs within the college.

Our dedicated faculty and staff are the strength of the college. Faculty engage with students and encourage authentic dialogue about diversity and social justice concerns and prepare students to be researchers, servant leaders, and knowledgeable professionals. Our staff have a wealth of knowledge about our academic and co-curricular programs and activities. They complement faculty and department chairs in providing excellent customer service to students and visitors, and they also have the technical expertise for the efficient operation of the college.  

Send us your questions, complements or concerns by emailing We look forward to serving you on campus, online, and in your communities.
