Counselor Education, School Psychology & Human Services (CSH)
Cultivating Leaders Who Transform Lives and Communities. Through dynamic instruction, experiential learning, and interdisciplinary collaboration, the Department of Counselor Education, School Psychology, and Human Services (CSH) prepares innovators to apply theoretical, educational, and clinical models to practice and research. We produce advocates and leaders to serve diverse populations, to enhance wellness, and to promote social justice for individuals, families, schools, and communities.
Early Childhood, Multilingual & Special Education (EMS)
Developing Educators and Leaders Who Change Lives. The Department of Early Childhood, Multilingual, and Special Education (EMS) is designed and dedicated to prepare professionals for specialized services in schools, community agencies, and higher education settings. We promote and embrace the concept of cultural diversity and we affirm our commitment to the ethical standards of our respective disciplines.
Educational Psychology and Higher Education (EPHE)
Helping Learners Learn and Helping Leaders Lead. We prepare school principals, college and university administrators and future learning, development, and motivation researchers for faculty positions at universities. EPHE programs provide students with the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills to help them become good decision makers—wherever they may be. If we fail in our mission, schools, colleges, and universities have no leaders.

Inquire. Educate. Innovate. The Department of Teaching & Learning holds as its central mission educational research and the preparation of educators at all levels. The department ensures that its professional education programs are based on essential knowledge, established and current research findings, and sound professional practice.

Rosemarie (“Ro”) Puccio Hartle was a loving wife, mother and warrior in the fight against cancer. Ro attended UNLV and attained her Bachelor of Science in Education in 1991 and later received a graduate degree in Education. UNLV is where she met her husband, Kirk Hartle, in 1985. They married in 1989 and had Nicholas Anthony in 1994 and Taylor Nicole in 1996. Ro was extraordinarily dedicated to raising her children. Upon graduating from UNLV, she was an elementary school teacher in the Clark County School District until 2005 when she became a stay at home mom. She was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in 2010 which recurred in 2014 and again in 2016. Ro was the epitome of a fighter dealing with cancer, especially the recurrences. Sadly, she lost her battle to the disease and passed away in 2017. She was a gift and blessing to the community and so many others who have crossed her path.
