Dear Students and Prospective Students:

You heard the old adage, “Things Change,” but somethings never change.  They remain constant.  “Students First” will always be the rally cry of the UAPB School of Education.  We want you to know, “You belong here. This is your university!”

Because of you, the School of Education has hired a superb, qualified faculty and staff to serve you. We have established a well-respected Department of Curriculum and Instruction; a state-of-the arts Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation, and a rigorous Graduate Program.  We have nestled Upward Bound within our School of Education to insure a pathway to our great university.

We understand that college is more than learning facts and absorbing information.  It’s about living a good rounded life that permits you to gain, not only knowledge, but the social experiences and networks that will later propel your career. I expect you to take full advantage of the social opportunities that awaits you on our campus and within the School of Education through our honor society and student clubs.

My office is always open. I welcome your comments and visits. Together, we can make UAPB your destination university and the School of Education your source of pride.  Let’s get ready to ROAR!


With the Pride of a Lioness,

Wanda Y. Newell, Ph.D.

Interim Dean
