College of Education Health & Human Performance


From our beginnings as the first private normal   school in West Virginia in 1865, Fairmont State has been committed to the preparation and support of professionals who are ready to make a difference in the lives of those they serve, and in the communities in which they live.  Our commitment is embodied most importantly in the work of our graduates,who are educated in rigorous academic programs and who enter their professional work ready to meet the challenges of their day.  Today that commitment means preparing educators who are responsive to the needs for all learners, and who engage in reflective practice.  They have the knowledge, skills and professional dispositions to   be educators in a work shaped by increasing diversity, rapidly changing technology and the opportunities to be found of a creativity-driven economy.
