Following a vote by department faculty and approval by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, the Department of Family Sciences is now the Department of Human Development, Family Studies, and Counseling (HDFS&C for short.)

This new title is more accurate and is parallel to other departments with similar degree programs.
