Giving to the School of Education and Human Development

Private philanthropy has been and continues to be essential in helping the School of Education and Human Development (SEHD) spark transformation through education. Without support from alumni, parents, families, and the community our success is not possible. We appreciate the generosity from donors and hope to grow our philanthropic community to continue the good work our faculty and students continue to do.

Priorities of the SEHD:


Scholarships are a top priority for the SEHD and necessary to become truly competitive and fulfill the University of Miami’s goal of providing access to qualified students, regardless of financial need.

Greatest Needs

Greatest needs of the School of Education and Human Development allows for Dean Kohn-Wood to support important initiatives or other support that directly benefit SEHD undergraduate and graduate students and faculty.

Give to Departments in SEHD to offer important opportunities to students

Educational and Psychological Studies

We generate knowledge and prepare reflective leaders, researchers, methodologists, and practitioners to improve psychological, educational, and community well-being. Intellectual stimulation and cooperation characterize the academic culture within the Department of Educational and Psychological Studies. Faculty and students create a community of scholars in which respect and professionalism are common goals. From this solid base of mutual support, students are encouraged to take risks to maximize learning. To learn more about the diverse projects our community of scholars are involved with, click here.

Kinesiology and Sport Sciences

Students in the Athletic Training program receive an outstanding clinical and academic background while having wonderful opportunities to work closely with our Division 1 Varsity Athletics program in the emergency care, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. Students in the exercise physiology program receive a sound scientific education with opportunities for applied physiological research and hands-on clinical experiences. The sport administration program prepares students for administrative careers in both amateur and professional sport industries.
