Division of Education, Health, & Social Work

Welcome from the Chair

williamson2Dear Firebird,

Welcome to the Division of Education, Health, and Social Work!  On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to our webpage. I encourage you to explore the wonderful programs we have to offer, and contact us for more information.

Our Division is comprised of a dozen accredited degree and certification programs, designed with community needs in mind. The class sizes in our Division offer our students the opportunity and advantage of getting to know advisors and instructors personally. Faculty in each of our programs are dedicated to providing quality teaching and clinical experiences for students that will prepare them for the 21st century workforce and produce agents of change in an inequitable world. Curriculum in each program has been carefully crafted to reflect national and local trends, and to promote sound judgment and decision making in a professional environment.

UDC students have the unique opportunity to gain real-world experiences that will better prepare them for life after graduation. We offer programs in Education, Counseling, Social work, and Speech Language and Pathology that continue to be nationally recognized, strengthening our learners’ potential impact on the students and communities they will serve.

If I, or anyone on our staff, can be of assistance in your educational journey, please let me know. We look forward to serving you.
