It is truly an honor and a privilege to serve as Dean of the School of Education and Psychology at Walla Walla University. Our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to preparing students for a life of service, purpose, and leadership by developing each person’s unique gifts in a Christian community of faith and discovery. The School of Education and Psychology is a place for students to develop 21st Century skills required in this ever-changing world such as problem solving, communication, collaboration, creativity, and cross-disciplinary thinking. As a community of Christian scholars, we encourage students to develop themselves physically, mentally, and spiritually to their highest potential.
