Greetings Friends of the College of Education, Health and Human Development (EHHD):

It continues to be my honor and privilege to serve as the Dean of the College of Education, Health and Human Development.  I am so proud of what we have accomplished in the past year.  In this annual impact report, we share stories of how we enact our core values through collaborative research, innovative teaching, and relevant community engagement.  Some of our stories focus on how we integrate our research, teaching, and service—and this I believe is where we are making the greatest impact.

We continue to increase our external grants and research products.  New academic programming in our college is increasing access to education in Montana and beyond.  We are partnering with rural and tribal communities to address Montana’s most important issues. 

We are ever grateful to our alumni and donors who support us in achieving our mission at MSU.  I would enjoy hearing your feedback on this annual impact report.  Please send your comments to EHHDDEAN@montana.edu.  Throughout this year we will be sending short video highlights of what is happening in our college.  Please continue to send your feedback and ideas.  We would love to hear more about what our amazing alums are doing out there in the world.           


Thanks for your support!
