The College of Education and Human Services is in its fifth decade of service to the region, the state, and the nation and takes pride in the foundation it has laid as an institution and the difference it has made in the lives of our current and former students.

The College of Education and Human Services at Wright State University is one of 39 out of 51 teacher preparation institutions in the state of Ohio accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Our entire educator preparation program has NCATE accreditation and full approval by the Ohio Department of Higher Education.

School Counseling, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling programs are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) .

Our Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). Sports Science is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP). 

These voluntary accreditations assure our current students and our alumni that when reviewed and evaluated by external associations, our programs are considered excellent and are based on the best current available research to guide professional practice.

The College has been proud to be a member of the National Network for Educational Renewal (NNER) since 1993 and has recently assumed the role of administrative host of the NNER. The Dean participates on the NNER Governing Council and Executive Committee, and meets monthly with Ohio's State University Education Dean’s Council (SUED).
