College of Education & Human Services

The College prepares students for professional careers as social workers, teachers, counselors, school administrators, gerontologists, public professionals, and researchers.  Faculty of the College take full advantage of UIS’ location in the state capital by maintaining close ties with the Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois Department of Human Services.  Due to the large number of state government employees, educators, and human service professionals in Springfield, the College’s academic programs are vital to the city’s economic and employment base.
