July 26, 2000 – (Lexington, Ky.) – The University of Kentucky College of Human Environmental Science was recently distinguished for its family life education undergraduate programs and received the Provisional Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE) designation from the National Council on Family Relations. The college is the only one in Kentucky with a CFLE designation and one of 46 approved undergraduate and graduate programs in the nation.

"This attests to the outstanding quality of our programs and the high education of our graduates," said Gladys Hildreth, chairperson of the college's Department of Family Studies.

The certification verifies that each approved program educates its students in 10 substance areas – families and society, internal dynamics of families, human growth and development, human sexuality, interpersonal relationships, family resource management, parent education, family law and public policy, ethics and family life education methodology.

UK's program will be recognized for its certification at the council's annual national meeting, held this year in November in Minneapolis.

The National Council of Family Relations is a member-funded, non-partisan educational and professional organization. In addition to member services and programs, it publishes the Journal of Marriage and Family and Family Relations, among other family research and education resources.
