Centennial Committee Members
The preparation and design for the centennial took place in monthly meetings by staff and faculty. We discussed ideas for its theme and decided upon “Educating for Democracy in a Diverse World”. We also voted on such topics as: the logo, the keynote speakers, and the year-long calendar of events. When the pandemic hit in early 2020, the committee recalibrated its plans and redesigned in-person events to virtual platforms.
Here are those who volunteered their time, expertise, and ideas. The centennial owes its success to those below:

Message from the Centennial Co-Chairs
We have been honored to serve as co-chairs to our School of Education’s Centennial Committee. In the planning for this momentous year, committee members worked to design events and projects that sought to unpack our school’s long history, appraise current educational trends, and envision future possibilities in the field of teacher education, community partnerships, and school leadership. While the work was daunting, the rewards were far-reaching.
Over 40 staff and faculty participated in this year-long planning process. Working on this project during the Covid pandemic, helped the Centennial Committee to focus on a joyous endeavor. In the process, we developed strong bonds of trust and solidarity as we engaged in new conversations and creative collaborations with one another. The Centennial inspired us to look anew at our School of Education community – past, present, and future.
