Amy Gratch Hoyle, Ph.D.

Professor, Dean of the School of Education & Human Services

Welcome to Neumann University’s School of Education and Human Services. The School houses the following programs:

The School offers B.A. degrees in Education Studies, Early Elementary Education (PK-4)/Special Education (PK-12) and Secondary Education concentrations, as well as a fully online Master in Education, an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership, and a number of specialized certifications and endorsements. In addition to its educational programming, the School is home to the Department of Theological and Pastoral Studies, which offers minors, as well as a CACREP-accredited, clinically oriented M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. The School also houses a robust, CSWE-accredited Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program and is home to the on-campus Child Development Center.

Faculty in the School of Education and Human Services are accessible and approachable, ensuring students experience a uniquely personalized education while at Neumann. We live the Catholic Franciscan tradition through our teaching and through our relationships with students and their families. Our work with students in and beyond the classroom reflects our commitment to the Neumann University values, known campus-wide as RISES: respect, reverence, integrity, service, excellence, and stewardship.

In the School of Education and Human Services, faculty believe that education is a vehicle through which learners can become who they were created to be and that education is essential to individual happiness and to a democratic community. We believe in education that shows us the creative power of hope and teaches us the peace that comes from justice. Through such education, students become engaged citizens, actively participating in society as we work together for social justice.

I look forward to answering any questions you have and to welcoming you into Neumann University’s School of Education and Human Services.

Amy Gratch Hoyle, Ph.D.
