The University of Michigan Board of Regents officially approved the new academic unit of the College of Education, Health, and Human Services to begin on September 1, 2013. The former School of Education was expanded to include the areas of health and human services. This change provides synergistic opportunities for increasing the positive impact CEHHS graduates and faculty have within Southeastern Michigan communities. The college is composed of two distinct departments and provides programming for students interested in education, health, or human services as well as training that emphasizes collective curriculum in both health and education.
