College of Education and Human Development

Welcome to the Beverley Taylor Sorenson College of Education and Human Development

Our primary mission is to advance education, human performance, and family development through knowledge, compassion, and action.

The College of Education contains the Teacher Education & Family Development, Kinesiology & Outdoor Recreation, and Graduate Studies in Education departments.  Within each department you will find faculty and staff that are dedicated to providing meaningful educational opportunities.  These opportunities are provided through our degrees that are centered around community partnerships.  Partnerships with Iron County School District, Art Works for Kids, the Utah Arts Council, U.S. Forest and Park Service, SUU Outdoor initiative, Southwest Education Development Center K-16 Regional Alliance, and many others provide our students with opportunities to be involved in internships, work opportunities, hands-on learning experience, and professional development growth.

Education then, beyond all other devices of human origin, is the great equalizer of the conditions of men, the balance-wheel of the social machinery.”
