The CBSS is one of the oldest and largest schools within CBU. In addition to its rich historical foundations and current strength in student enrollment, the CBSS is well known for its variety of program offerings, research and scholarship, practicum and training sites and service to the community. The Center for the Study of Human Behavior, the only facility of this kind at CBU, serves as an integral student and faculty research and training center.

Through academic and community engagement, rigorous research agendas and excellence in teaching and learning, the CBSS seeks to bring hope and healing to our world. Alums of the CBSS are well educated and trained in the classroom and in practical settings; but, more importantly, they are equipped to serve with excellence, compassion and love in their respective settings. I invite you to learn more about the CBSS and find community here at CBU!

Please contact me and we can discuss how one of our programs can equip you with the necessary knowledge, understanding and skill to respond to God's call in your life.
