The School Education and Human Development (SEHD) and our departments — Department of Counseling, Recreation, and School Psychology, Department of Educational Policy Studies, and Department of Teaching and Learning — are committed to conducting high-quality research that informs practice and drives policy. We serve as a resource for our community by supporting our partners and preparing outstanding professionals and leaders in the field. We aim to serve as a model and drive the national conversation on education.
Support Future Teachers
Our graduates work at Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS), a large, urban school district where our Panthers make up 35 percent of all teachers. In fact, our alumni are doing so well in the classroom that four of the last six M-DCPS Teachers of the Year and four of the last six Miami-Dade Principals of the Year are FIU alumni.
