College of Education
and Allied Professions
“I took my job as head of the department most seriously. It occurred
to me that if we could improve what is going on in the public school,
improve the learning process by just one percent — what this could
do for our country and the world? This was the spirit that makes
me want to stay at this school — the fact that everywhere the
opportunity for trying out new ideas was unlimited.”
Dr. Carl Dan Killian

Teacher Education
Dr. Carl Dan Killian Sr. became head of the education and
psychology department at Western Carolina Teacher’s College
in 1935. The Killian Building is named for him. In celebration of
Western Carolina University’s 125th anniversary, the College
of Education and Allied Professions launched a campaign to
honor Dr. Killian and all those who proceeded and followed him
in making an impact on teaching and in the allied professions in
western North Carolina, across our state, and across the nation.
The Killian Society will be made up of individuals who believe
in the goals of the College of Education and Allied Professions
and who have committed to donate $125 per year for five
years (a total of $625) for scholarships for students majoring
in programs in the College. This relatively modest goal of
individuals committing only about $10.50 per month for five
years shows the power of what we can do when we work
together. If 125 people join the Killian Society and commit to
donating $125 per year at the end of our five year goal, we will
have generated over $78,000 for student scholarships.
There is already evidence of a growing commitment to
providing scholarships for students in the College. To date
there are 56 fully endowed scholarships that are providing
awards to students in the College. Additionally, there are two
scholarships building towards endowment. Members of the
Killian Society will be able to designate to which scholarship
their contributions will go.
