The College of Education and Human Services assumes responsibility for one of the university's primary functions: preparing teachers, educational leaders, and professionals in health, education, and human services. Many programs within the college lead to licensure by the Ohio Department of Education. The departments of Educational Leadership, Teacher Education, Health, Physical Education and Recreation, and Human Services prepare licensed and nonlicensed leaders for public and private schools, industry, hospitals, sports medicine clinics, and community agencies. These leaders include public school teachers, principals, curriculum supervisors, central office administrative specialists, athletic trainers, school guidance counselors, personnel counselors, rehabilitation service providers, sign language interpreters, community and mental health counselors, and student affairs (higher education) practitioners.

The Bachelor of Science in Education degree and the Bachelor of Science degree with majors in sign language interpreting, rehabilitation services and organizational leadership are offered. The college also offers programs leading to the Master of Arts, Master of Education, Master of Rehabilitation Counseling, Master of Science, and Educational Specialist degrees.

Throughout its history, the college has maintained a close working relationship with the public schools and community agencies in the region. Frequent involvement of the College of Education and Human Services faculty in the schools and agencies of the area, and the advice and planning assistance of public school and agency personnel, serve to improve the college's programs, the programs of community schools, and the services of community agencies.

The current edition of the Wright State University Report on the Quality of Teacher Preparation can be found in the Appendix. Current and future reports are also available at http://www.wright.edu/policies/passrates/.
