About the College and University 

Launched in Summer 2023, Seton Hall’s College of Human Development, Culture, and Media (CHDCM) embodies the University’s commitment to pedagogical innovation, intellectual ferment, and community engagement. Uniting scholars and students from four dynamic departments—Communication, Media, and the Arts; Education Leadership, Management, and Policy; Educational Studies; and Professional Psychology and Family Therapy—the College is the new home of cutting-edge, transdisciplinary inquiry into the stickiest problems of our time. 
The faculty, staff, and students of the College seek to improve the human condition by collaborating across distinct fields that uniquely complement one another, thereby preparing the next generation of dynamic leaders poised to tackle contemporary social challenges and opportunities.  Expression underpins all facets of the integrated College’s portfolio — media as a form of education and artistic expression; teaching and learning as modes of creative expression; expression and expressibility as critical to counseling and therapeutic treatment; and self-expression as a vehicle of social agency. With enrollment at approximately 1,550 total students, both graduate and undergraduate, CHDCM is the second largest college at Seton Hall University, with approximately 70 full time faculty and 125 adjunct faculty.

Seton Hall is located in South Orange, New Jersey, just 14 miles from New York City. The University is the oldest Catholic diocesan institution of higher education in the United States, and the Carnegie Foundation classifies it as a doctoral university. It is home to approximately 6,300 undergraduate and 4,700 graduate students from every state in the United States and from more than 70 countries around the world. Nearly 40 percent of our undergraduates identify themselves as students of color, and this figure is increasing with each new graduating class. The University also prides itself on supporting first generation students, and 98% of our students receive scholarships and grants to fund their education. Given this exciting and rich, diverse community, Seton Hall pursues academic excellence and ethical development in a collaborative environment, and prepares its students to be servant leaders in their professional and community lives, capable of engaging effectively with diverse populations.

In keeping with Seton Hall’s emphasis upon those historically excluded from higher education, the College of Human Development, Culture, and Media embraces the value and power of diversity—and the critical importance of creating inclusive, welcoming forms of community. Reflecting the University’s mission, the College is committed to advancing social justice, championing equity and inclusivity, and working toward an anti-racist future, free of violence and oppression of all kinds. We are especially called by our mission to serve underserved communities in and around the Archdiocese of Newark, though we also recognize the need to attend to the intersection of the local, national, and global in questions of power and access. We therefore commit to addressing systemic inequality and injustice of all kinds, and we look forward to welcoming new colleagues similarly aligned to this mission.
