The College of Education & Human Development has restructured and renamed two of its departments, effective July 1, 2018.
The Department of Educational Psychology, Special Education and Communication Disorders will now be called the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, which will be housed with the Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic on the college’s eighth floor. Professor Julie Washington will serve as department chair.
The Learning Technologies Division will now be called the Department of Learning Sciences, which will encompass programs in educational psychology, special education and learning technologies. Professor Brendan Calandra will serve as department chair.
These departmental changes will help the college build on its research, teaching and service – all of which continue to grow as more students enroll in education, human development and health-related programs.
“The Department of Learning Sciences is one of the fastest-growing intellectual and instructional areas in education, and our Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders has seen rising enrollment and an expanded research portfolio,” said Paul Alberto, college dean. “We look forward to their continued success and growth.”
