The name was announced Wednesday by Dean Damon Andrew after a vote by the FSU Faculty Senate and the college’s faculty.
“A college’s name is an important symbol of its overall mission,” Andrew said. “I believe that our college is positioned to achieve its goal of maximizing human potential, and this new name reflects that ambition.”
The College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences will offer greater opportunities for collaboration across research areas related to the human experience. This research synergy will position FSU to better attract funding from federal agencies.
The expanded college will reap the benefits of enhanced infrastructure in areas such as academic advising, research support, information technology, fundraising and communications, enabling it to provide more resources to students, faculty and staff.

“Already, our faculty, staff, and students have benefited from the expansion process,” Andrew said. “We are providing more resources than ever before to support our community, and I anticipate these resources to continue to mature as the expansion process continues.”
The college outlined a timeline for transitioning the college’s website, social media accounts and email communications. The information can be found at education.fsu.edu/expansion.
The college is home to six academic departments united through a common goal to maximize human potential.
The college includes the Department of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies, Department of Educational Psychology & Learning Systems, Department of Human Development & Family Sciences, Department of Health, Nutrition and Food Sciences, Department of Sport Management, School of Teacher Education, numerous research centers, and three laboratory schools: Florida State University School, FSU Pembroke Pines Charter School, and The Collegiate School at FSU Panama City.
With 187 full-time faculty and 73 full-time staff, the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences serves more than 4,500 students.
Students in the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences will have access to more resources than ever before. The new college will offer more than $1 million in scholarship support, more than any other college at FSU. All current degrees and majors will continue to be offered.
Also, students will become part of one of the largest colleges on FSU’s campus and, upon graduation, the second largest living alumni network at FSU.
