The College of Education and Human Development is home to nearly 5,000 students, including more than 1,000 graduate students, enrolled in more than 50 programs, ranging from apparel merchandising and exercise science to sport management and the college student personnel program. From the first-generation college student who wants to lead a higher education team, to a sport management major preparing for that intimidating professional interview, your generosity helps BGSU students go far – in college now and in communities later.
Your investment supports vital opportunities from internships to education abroad experiences, strengthening students as professionals in their fields.
College of Education and Human Development General Support Fund - All undergraduate programs in the college include culminating experiences such as student teaching and internships. This fund supports the college’s goals for recruiting, retaining and supporting EDHD students, faculty and staff, as well as college-wide initiatives, community involvement and alumni activities and events.
Department of Higher Education and Student Affairs - For more than 40 years, the Department of Higher Education and Student Affairs has worked to create and affirm a culture that encourages personal development, academic and professional integrity and social action. This fund provides for program activities, student professional development, SDA student organization, educational materials and recruiting.
EDHD Professional Development Fund - The Professional Development Fund aids students in the College of Education and Human Development who are completing an internship, student teaching or other classroom-related experience off campus by providing them with a small gas card to help with what can be a significant expense.
EDHD Gas Card Fund - With fuel costs rising and inflation increasing, EDHD Dean Dawn Shinew wants to give out an even greater number of gas cards at an increased amount to all students who are completing an internship, practicum, student teaching or other classroom-related experiences at a distance from campus. Your gift to this fund (part of the EDHD Professional Development Fund) helps accomplish this goal. A gas card can show support for our students for what can be a significant educational expense.
Expedition Fund - This fund provides scholarships for EDHD students studying abroad at both the undergraduate and graduate level and has impacted many students over the years. The opportunity to experience other cultures plays a critical role in students’ development as global citizens. For many students, these experiences are not possible without support from donations to this fund.
School of Counseling and Special Education – Private support enables the School of Counseling and Special Education to enhance the experiences and opportunities of pre-service and in-service teachers, as well as mental health and school counselors. This fund provides for general support, operational needs and program support, such as intervention specialist, autism and clinical mental health school counseling activities and professional development.
School of Family and Consumer Sciences - The disciplines in the School of Family and Consumer Sciences emphasize the interactions among human beings, the contexts in which people live and work and the design and development of fashion – all within a focus on long-term health and sustainability. This fund provides for general support, operational needs and program support for our students and faculty.
School of Human Movement, Sport and Leisure Studies - The School of Human Movement, Sport and Leisure Studies is committed to the creation, enhancement and dissemination of knowledge in the fields of exercise science, athletic training, sport, tourism and hospitality. This fund provides for programs and activities within the school, as well as for student support and awards.
