In the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD), we value the student experience within and beyond the classroom.
We take pride in recruiting talented students, providing them with an exceptional educational experience in our various degree and certificate programs, and producing successful graduates who are well-prepared and qualified for entry into their professions and advanced studies.
Successful students are informed, engaged, and present. We encourage you to know University policies and procedures, participate in research opportunities with faculty, join professional clubs and honor societies, build a professional relationship with your advisors, and take full advantage of the academic success resources available through CEHD and the university. The CEHD faculty and staff are available to support your academic journey at Mason.
In addition to the resources offered through your degree and certificate programs, the staff in the CEHD Office of Student and Academic Affairs (SAA) is here to support you. SAA supports the teaching and service mission of the college by providing a broad range of informational, advising, and support resources to potential and existing students, instructional and part-time faculty, and staff.
Key resources we offer for students include, but are not limited to:
- Resources for student success
- Review student appeals and grievances
- Coordinate scholarships and awards
- Advise future teachers
- Plan student engagement activities and graduation
- Help students understand Mason’s administrative and academic policies
