A note from Elizabeth Moje as she begins as dean

Tags: deans updates


Since these are my first Dean’s Updates, I want to take a moment to express how excited I am to work with each of you. Together, we will continue to pursue the SOE’s two-part mission to conduct and disseminate the best scholarship on education practice, policy, and on the contexts of teaching and learning, even as we also educate the strongest practitioners of education. This mission is advanced by our deep-seated commitment to producing more diverse, inclusive, just, and equitable teaching and learning environments for all people. In particular, we will strengthen our research and teaching mission through enhanced community engagement in Detroit and surrounding communities.

As we move forward with this mission, we will continue to improve our fiscal strength, develop new and powerful pathways into education practice, and generate new opportunities and resources to support our research endeavors.

I am eager to begin this work with all of you. I thank you for your support in the past few months as I have transitioned into my new role, and I look forward to our continued conversations. I am extremely grateful to be part of this community and will endeavor to serve you to the best of my ability.
