From the dean
Believe it or not, fundraising for the School of Education is one the best jobs a dean gets to do. It tells us how much the work done here is appreciated. This year-to-date, we have received 167 individual gifts totaling more than $30,000. They come from alumni, parents, faculty, staff and perhaps most amazing of all, our current students. These gifts allow us to support faculty and student participation in professional conferences, graduate students' study abroad in Costa Rica, guest speakers, professional development for teachers, academic support for local children and so much more. Thank you for making all this possible.
