EHS Name

Prior to Jan. 1, 2008, the College of Education, Health and Society (EHS) was known as the School of Education and Allied Professions (EAP). The current name better reflects the scope of efforts of the school’s five departments and the interrelationships among the academic disciplines.


Interaction With Students


The School is committed to the belief that all students need the kinds of training, exposure and experiences that will allow them to function effectively in an increasingly diverse society. For more information about diversity efforts, please visit the diversity section of our site.


Strong and growing partnerships with school districts and community agencies provide hands-on opportunities for students and research opportunities for faculty. Miami is one of the few schools of education nationwide to have a partnership office.

Research and centers

EHS faculty are addressing the critical issues facing children, schools and society in their research. Please visit the research section of our site for more information.
