Under the leadership of Dean Charles R. Martinez, Jr., the College of Education is committed to preparing educators, researchers, and leaders to join us in responding to pressing challenges in education and health. We do this within three strategic impact areas: Advancing equity and eliminating disparities in education and health, attending to place and context, and thriving through transitions.
Community and collaboration are vital to the learning experience, so the college has embarked on an innovative plan to hire faculty members whose experience will enable the college to take bold steps in scholarship. Dean Martinez also is inviting notable speakers from across the U.S. to present their interdisciplinary research related to education, teaching, leadership, and health to inspire our faculty and students as we work to Reimagine Education.
