MEMORANDUM


11 February 2013

To:
  UNLV Campus Community

From:  Carl L. Reiber
              Vice Provost for Academic Affairs

Subject:   Approved Name Change:  

FROM Degree: Master of Education (M.Ed.), Emphasis: Educational Leadership

TO Degree: Master of Education (M.Ed.), Emphasis: Higher Education
_____________________________________________________________________________

The NSHE Academic Affairs Council approved the following name change at their December 2012
meeting. This is the final approval.

FROM Degree: Master of Education (M.Ed.), Emphasis: Educational Leadership

TO Degree: Master of Education (M.Ed.), Emphasis: Higher Education

Reorganization of the UNLV College of Education was approved at the June 2011 NSHE Board of
Regents meeting. In that reorganization, the Department of Educational Leadership (and the
programs housed within) was absorbed into other units. The M.Ed., Emphasis: Educational Leadership
program is now in the Department of Educational Psychology and Higher Education. A name change to
M.Ed., Emphasis: Higher Education more accurately reflects the program requirements and supports 
degree holders seeking higher education positions.

Effective Date: Fall 2012

Please note for lists, databases, and generation of appropriate codes, etc.

For further information, please contact the Department of  Educational Psychology and Higher Education at (703) 895-3253.
