Georgia State’s education college changes name, expands focus

Georgia State University’s College of Education has changed its name to the College of Education & Human Development.

The new name, which takes effect today, better represents the full scope of the teaching, research and service of the college,” said Risa Palm, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost. “The college prepares not only teachers and administrators, but also a variety of other professionals in human services.”

The College of Education & Human Development offers more than 60 graduate and undergraduate degree and non-degree programs across six academic departments and one academic division. The college graduates about 900 students a year and prepares about 400 new teachers annually.
