Dean's Message
W. Hal Knight, Ph.D.

Welcome to the Claudius G. Clemmer College of Education. I am very pleased that you have chosen our college as a place to either begin your academic career or to continue it through one of our six undergraduate and sixteen graduate degree programs.

Our goal is for you to be successful in your educational pursuits. Whether you want to be a teacher, an exercise physiologist, a counselor, a recreation manager, or a school or college administrator -- we have a program for you.

Our teacher education programs are accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE); a distinction held by fewer than 600 programs across the country.

We are proud of the hands-on nature of our programs. If you are studying to become a teacher, you will be immersed in school experiences from your first professional course to student teaching. We also have opportunities for hands-on learning at the Bristol Motor Speedway and with professional sports for students in sports management, with area national parks for recreation students, and with BucSports and the Human Performance Lab for exercise science students.

Our distinguished faculty and professional advisors stand ready to assist you in your academic pursuits. We want to help you become part of our story here at ETSU.

Please feel free to contact me at if I can be of help to you.
