On behalf of the faculty and staff in the College of Liberal Arts, Education and Human Development, welcome! You have found the most diverse of the colleges at UNO where our vast array of majors, minors, certificates, accelerated master’s degrees, and other opportunities for study will meet the needs of all who want to know more about themselves, the world, and the way things work. I invite you to tour our web pages to get to know our innovative programs, our top-notch faculty, and our highly accomplished staff.
All of us in the College of Liberal Arts, Education and Human Development value the entire experience of the student starting from the moment you contact us to inquire about our programs and extending to the moment you walk across the commencement stage, shake hands with the president, and receive your diploma. After graduation, we hope you will remain closely connected to us: many of our alumni contribute time and talent to our advisory boards, teach classes as adjunct instructors, and help promote COLAEHD by serving as our ambassadors in the community. For those looking to us in search of professional opportunities, I’m confident that the enthusiasm we feel for our work as faculty and staff as well as the commitments we share to the college and to the university shine forth in the pages that follow.
