Diverse programming and experiential learning top of mind for SEHHB Interim Dean Paul Rose – RiverBender.com

EDWARDSVILLE - The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Education, Health and Human Behaviors (SEHHB) diverse programming offers students powerful learning opportunities that are not readily available elsewhere, according to Interim Dean Paul Rose, PhD.

In his interim role as leader of the School, Rose is focused on working collectively with faculty and staff to orient academic programs around student needs. A key component in fostering student success, he says, is the infusion of experiential learning opportunities into the programming which covers education, health sciences and behavioral science.

Students in the School of Education, Health and Human Behavior get a diversity of experiences from our wide range of disciplines, Rose said. We continue to expand opportunities for students through new programming and innovative learning environments.

Were particularly excited about the imminent launch of a public health graduate program. This will add to our health science offerings and allow us to contribute public health leaders to the region. Additionally, our new nutrition laboratory is providing applied learning experiences for students in our growing nutrition program.

The School also prides itself on community engagement activities and outreach clinics that not only create hands-on experiences for students, but also provide tremendous value to members of the community.

Were grateful for the partners we have throughout the region and want to continue to build on those relationships, said Rose. These partnerships allow our students to become involved in the community and apply their knowledge in the field.

Also contributing to student success, is the Schools unique emphasis on student mentoring through faculty and professional advising, as well as research supervision.

Through strong mentorships, students are able to get the advice they need to be highly effective in achieving their goals, Rose explained. Were enthusiastic about educating citizens who will contribute to their communities and become highly effective employees within the diversity of disciplines that our School represents.

The SIUE School of Education, Health and Human Behavior prepares students in a wide range of fields including public health, exercise science, nutrition, instructional technology, psychology, speech-language pathology and audiology, educational administration, and teaching. Faculty members engage in leading-edge research, which enhances teaching and enriches the educational experience. The School supports the community through on-campus clinics, outreach to children and families, and a focused commitment to enhancing individual lives across the region.
