By now you have probably heard that Hardin-Simmons University is adjusting their organizational structure and program offerings. This post will explain the restructuring of the current graduate and undergraduate programs within the CHSES at Hardin-Simmons University and the transitioning process into the next academic years. If you are graduating May 2020, you will not be affected by the following changes, your graduation will be in the College of Human Sciences and Educational Studies as planned.

Closure of graduate programs include the following:

Reading
Gifted
Express Teacher Certification (ETC)

Closure of undergraduate programs include the following:

Physical Education

Please know any current students enrolled in any of these academic programs will complete the degree in a timely manner. There will be a “teach-out” for these programs.

We will no longer be a College of Human Sciences & Educational Studies. With the collapsing of the CHSES, the different departments/school within the CHSES, will be added to other HSU Colleges.

Here are the changes effective Fall 2020:

College of Health Professions

Athletic Training

Fitness, Recreation & Sports Management

Master of Science in Kinesiology, Sport & Recreation


College of Business & Professional
Studies

Irvin School of Education Teacher Preparation

Human Services Administration (all four tracks)

Master of Education in Higher Education & Student Affairs

Master of Education in Special Education (pending SACSCOC approval)

Doctor of Leadership in Higher Education



College of Liberal Arts

Graduate Studies in:

COHD & CCMF

While change is a part of life, the quality of your career preparation remains the utmost importance to all the faculty members in your programs. We will continue to provide the same level of excellence in all aspects of your remaining time at HSU.

Hardin-Simmons University Irvin School of Education

Over 3 years of planning together, dreaming together, praying together, and traveling to other centers to gain insights together. The day finally arrived to dedicate the Houston-Lantrip Center for Literacy and Learning. We are grateful for the many passionate donors and educators who made this possible along with the support of the current faculty and staff within our College of Human Sciences & Educational Studies and Irvin School of Education. Grateful for the support and vision of Dr. Perry K. Brown, Dean of the College of Human Sciences & Educational Studies, Dr. Emily Dean, Director of the HLCLL, and Dr. Trube Miller, Director of the Special Education - Applied Behavior Analysis program. We are excited for the educational training this facility will bring to graduate and undergraduate education majors. Along with the educational training, we are thankful for the future children and families who will be blessed by the people within this amazing facility. We appreciate the many HSU administrators and faculty/staff members who assisted in committee meetings, construction of facility meetings, etc. We cannot forget the special people who came 20 years before today who had a part in building the educational foundation of the HLCLL - Dr. Pam Williford, previous Dean of the Irvin School of Education, Dr. Collene Simmons, previous director of the HLCC, and Mary Lou Butler, trainer within the HLCC. What a special continuation point for so many lives.

Here is a post from Kaylee Williams, an EC-6 education major, who attended the special event hosted at HSU, Big Country Walk for Autism, organized by Dr. Trube Miller.

We are ALL so thankful for Donna Snook, the Administrative Assistant to the Dean of CHSES at HSU. She provides calmness during academic and physical storms, wisdom regarding university and accrediting agency audits, organization and endless hours of mental and physical labor for major and minor events, professionalism at all times, respect and kindness for the lovable and unlovable, and compassion to everyone who crosses her path. She serves HSU as an adjunct professor while teaching two dance activity courses. Her Christian faith is caught and taught through daily decisions in her professional and personal life. We are appreciative of everything you do for all of us everyday.

We are deeply concerned that the leaders of Hardin-Simmons University have not cast a vision or made firm commitments about HSU’s future.
