As the Spring Semester draws to a close, I want to thank you for all you do to make the USF College of Education the excellent, inspiring place that it is.

Our faculty searches were successful and we are eagerly awaiting 3 new colleagues in August.
In this issue we are highlighting some of the many initiatives underway in the College and the accomplishments of our faculty, students and alumni. As you can see, the COEDU is engaged with our communities, locally and globally, undertaking significant interdisciplinary research, and blazing new trails in technology.
I am always heartened to learn about the difference our faculty, students and alumni are making in the lives of children, families and adults. I hope you will enjoy this issue of the Dean's Update.
