College of Education at Augusta University renamed College of Education and Human Development

Effective immediately, the College of Education at Augusta University has been renamed the College of Education and Human Development

“The College of Education has been working for years to identify a new name that is more inclusive of our entire team,” said Dr. Judi Wilson, dean of the College of Education and Human Development. 

“The previous name didn’t represent our largest major — kinesiology — or our mental health and school counseling program. Prospective students were understandably confused when, as a kinesiology major, they were sent to meet with the COE.” 

College leadership proposed the new name in spring 2022, where it received unanimous approval from the COE Assembly faculty and staff. In July, the name was formally approved by Augusta University leadership and the University System of Georgia. Over the coming weeks, the college will update its branding and digital presence to reflect the new name.
