Faculty & Staff

Diana Haleman joined the Department of Family Sciences in the fall of 2008 as a lecturer and was promoted in Senior Lecturer in spring 2014.  She teaches a variety of courses for both undergraduate and graduate students.  Although her responsibilities are primarily related to teaching, Dr. Haleman's research interests include early childhood development, parenting, and working with single parent families.  Dr. Haleman has extensive experience in a variety of university and community settings that include early childhood education, parent education, and early intervention services for children and families.

In spring 2010 Dr. Haleman was selected to teach the Bingham Seminar and this course on Irish immigration to the US culminated in a study abroad trip to Ireland in summer 2010.  This experience prompted a continuing interest in study abroad.  In fall 2013 Dr. Haleman participated in the initial Innovation and Design Lab conducted by the Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT) at UK.   She continues to incorporate a variety of innovative teaching strategies into her courses.
