Martin Patwell, Chairperson

The Department of Educational Development is a cadre of University faculty who have specific and specialized administrative and/or teaching assignments at the University. While much of the assigned responsibility is to facilitate students' out-of-class learning and development, regular and nonclassroom teaching are still included. Areas within the Department of Educational Development include pre-major academic advising, career advising, academic administration, tutoring, services for students with disabilities, and other articulated teaching and/or administrative assignments.
