Division of Education, Health, & Social Work

Welcome from the Chair

Dear Firebird,

Dr. Anika S. Burtin - ChairWelcome to the Division of Education, Health, and Social Work. Our Division is comprised of a variety of accredited, approved, and/or recognized degree and certification programs, designed to prepare practitioners who are equipped to meet the needs of our local and global community.

Faculty in each of our programs are guided by four principles—Dedication, Engagement, Honesty, and Success. These ideals are the basis for our interactions with students and the larger community. We strive to provide quality teaching and clinical experiences that will develop these same characteristics in our students, ultimately enabling them to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, and agents of change in the world.

I encourage you to explore our programs in Education, Counseling, Rehabilitation Counseling, Social Work, and Speech-Language Pathology. Contact us if you would like more information or if we can be of assistance in your educational journey.

We look forward to serving you.
