As the impact of the College of Education and Human Sciences rises, so too does its footprint across campus. With several major construction projects underway, CEHS has a presence on all three university campuses in Lincoln. When completed, these state-of-the-art facilities will enhance the academic experiences and unique hands-on learning opportunities only found in CEHS.

Child Development Lab School and Family Resource Center
East Campus

The College of Education and Human Sciences is actively raising funds to go to a new child development lab school and family resource center to be built on the east side of East Campus, near the Barkley Memorial Center. The facility will be home to the university’s child development lab, which provides childcare services, opportunities for college students to train to be teachers, and scholars to learn more about young children through research.
