Wheelock College

Wheelock College (or Wheelock) was founded in 1888 by Lucy Wheelock as Miss Wheelock's Kindergarten Training School. The college offered undergraduate and graduate programs that focus on the Arts & Sciences, Education and Child Life, and Social Work and Family Studies to fulfill their mission of improving the lives of children and families. In 2017, the school entered into negotiations to merge with Boston University. The college merged with Boston University’s School of Education on June 1, 2018 and was renamed Boston University Wheelock College of Education & Human Development. For at least two years after the merger, Wheelock’s president, David Chard, will serve as the interim dean. The preexisting physical real estate of Wheelock College is now named the Boston University Fenway Campus. Wheelock is in Boston (Massachusetts), and was a member of the Colleges of the Fenway.
