Colleges and Accreditations

At YSU, we’re setting the standard for educational excellence.

The Williamson College of Business Administration

Learn. Lead. Succeed.

They're not just words—they're goals. We live by them, and promise to help our students achieve them too. We're preparing our students every day to be business professionals and leaders. We are committed to engaging our students in relevant programs that impact their professional development.

The Beeghly College of Education

The Beeghly College of Education’s professional education programs are defined within a conceptual framework that articulates goals and identifies institutional standards that all teacher candidates are expected to meet. Our Conceptual Framework, “Reflection in Action,” seeks to develop reflective teachers who are:

Reasoned: Candidates exercise rational judgment and give thoughtful consideration to their professional activities and decisions.

Ethical: Candidates act in a moral, legal, and principled manner in professional practice.

Fair: Candidates exercise democratic fairness, principled concern, and humane care in their professional activities.

Logical: Candidates think analytically in a deliberately consistent and rationally defensible manner.

Effective: Candidates apply professional knowledge in a consciously purposeful and deliberate manner.

Critical: Candidates use professional knowledge, objectively applying it to their own professional actions and the professional actions of others to the benefit of their students and clients.

Technical: Candidates attend to procedural details and optimize the use of technologies appropriate to professional practice.

This conceptual framework functions to inform, guide, and inspire faculty and teacher candidates by providing a central core of related ideas from which programs evolve, are explained, and are assessed.

The Dr. Dominic A. and Helen M. Bitonte College of Health and Human Services

In support of the University’s mission to provide a wide range of educational opportunities in higher education, the Bitonte College of Health and Human Services assumes a broad focus. That focus entails preparing students for competent practice in positions in both the health and human service professions.

The College is committed to excellence in education through the quality programs it provides. To assure continuity and opportunity for health and human service majors, the College has encouraged the development of two-plus-two curricula in several majors that allow students to efficiently progress from associate to baccalaureate degree program completion.
