The College of Health and Human Services at Sacramento State has a long and proud history of providing the region with health and human services professionals who are leaders in the region through their innovation, engagement, and impact. The college plays important roles in addressing the workforce needs of the region, in community engagement, and in research that matters. With more than 38,000 alumni from the college, chances are that if you interact with a nurse, a social worker, or a police officer in the region, that person is a Sac State alum. With nearly 7,000 majors, making it the largest college on campus, the programs offered in the college continue to be in high demand. The faculty and staff are committed to student success, which is one of the primary values of our mission.

What is ReinventEd?

ReinventEd is a competition to support grassroots innovations in education.

ReinventEd is a competition to support grassroots innovations in education. It is organized by the College of Education with support by the Center for Entrepreneurship at Sacramento State University.

The big top-down educational reforms have not produced expected results. The time has come for grassroots, community-based innovation to change the face of education.

The ReinventEd competition is an opportunity to share your innovative project to a large audience of your peers and investors, with the prospect of winning a cash prize to support its development.
