The roots of the School of Education & Human Services can be traced back to 1966 when Dr. Erich Oetting was named Dean for Teacher Education. At that time, the school consisted of four parts: Psychology & Education; Guidance; Home Economics Teacher Education; and Industrial Teacher Education. Oetting retired in 1969 and was replaced by Dr. John Stevenson. Under Stevenson, the school grew dramatically. By the time David Sabatino became Dean in 1982, the School offered majors in psychology, vocational rehabilitation, guidance & counseling, marriage & family therapy, professional development, and school psychology, along with concentrations in special education and alcohol & drug abuse. Sabatino resigned in 1986 and was replaced by Dr. Ed Biggerstaff. Today the School of Education & Human Services consists of the Department of Counseling & Psychological Services, Department of Education, Department of Physical Education and Athletics, Department of Psychology, Department of Rehabilitation, and the Stout Vocational Rehabilitation Institute. During a later realignment, many of the former school's departments became part of the College of Human Development.
