Dean Gaetane Jean-MarieDear COE Alumni and Friends,

Welcome to the fall issue of Premier magazine. This past January, the College of Education transitioned back to Schindler Education Center (SEC) after the completion of the 18-month renovation. The college is filled with enthusiasm, and renewed focus on building community in our vibrant, modern learning environment. We are committed to advancing academic excellence and the impact of a university education through a dedicated focus on individual undergraduate and graduate students. We strive also to fulfill the potential of our talented and dedicated faculty with the support of alumni, parents, and friends of the college.

During the academic year, our faculty are deeply engaged in transforming teaching and learning for generations of students and the ensuing pages provide highlights of their work. There is much to share about the College of Education and I encourage you to take a moment to explore our faculty and student engaged in research/scholarly activities, teaching, and community engagement. Thank you for your continued support of the College of Education.
