The School of Education achieved recognition as the top school of education in the nation during an iconoclastic time in our country and on our campus. We will look back on the experimentation spearheaded by former dean Dwight Allen, the commitment to innovation and social justice that typified that period, and how this rich legacy infuses our current and future activities. Prominent alumni will share how they applied the academic rigor and commitment to social change to their respective fields, and the Dean will share highlights of the School’s current impact and transformation planned for Furcolo Hall. With the School of Education poised to assume a public leadership role in urban education, this panel will explore the School’s storied past and uninterrupted commitment to bold thinking and action, always with an eye to raising student achievement and life outcomes.
