A Culture of Support and Success
Every college has its own vibe, or culture. In the College of Education, we work towards the broader university goals of academic and instructional excellence, student-centeredness, and community engagement. What does that mean on a college level? And how do those objectives influence our college culture? Here at COE, it means we bring out the best in our students by creating a culture of support and success.
Most of our students are headed towards helping professions where they will be working with people—and many will work with vulnerable or underrepresented populations. Because of these factors, preparing students for success in school and in the workforce is a job that holds enormous responsibility.
Our world-class faculty is committed to helping students:
- Develop content knowledge through coursework and hands-on learning
- Measure competency through a variety of assessment methods
- Develop a high level of professionalism
- Cultivate the soft skills necessary to communicate in a complex, changing world
- Find opportunities to actively engage in service projects and work with people who might be very different from themselves
- Establish strong support systems
The necessity of strong support systems is highlighted in the most recent issue of our annual publication, Happenings. You'll meet our Academic Advisors who establish trusting relationships with undergraduate students through great communication and on-going professional development. You will also meet several of our Stellar Students—all who credit members of their families for creating strong support systems which both inspired their journey to COE and ensured their success here.
Also in Happenings, we look forward to having you learn more about the School of Health and Kinesiology, which recently underwent a name change.
Whether prospective student, parent, or current student, we encourage you to stay connected by visiting coe.unomaha.edu, and remember, our doors are always open and we welcome you to visit any of our three buildings: Roskens Hall, the School of Health & Kinesiology, and the Biomechanics Research Building.
