The UC Davis School of Education is transforming education through preparation of the best education leaders, researchers, and teachers in the country. We are committed to eliminating inequities in schooling and creating learning opportunities for diverse learners using the power of knowledge and the promise of education.
Lee Martin, associate professor of education, has been selected as a 2017-18 UC Davis Chancellor’s Fellow, a title he will hold for five years. The Chancellor’s Fellows Program recognizes associate professors or recently promoted full professors who are “the rising stars who shine as teachers and campus citizens, and whose scholarly work already puts them at the top of their fields — garnering attention far and wide.” It is one of the highest and most prestigious honors given at UC Davis.
Professor Deb Niemeier, who has a joint appointment at the School of Education and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has been elected to the prestigious National Academy of Engineering, which is among the highest honors in the profession.
Professor Michal Kurlaender continues to be one of the leading university-based scholars who are doing the most to influence educational policy and practice in the United States. This is the third consecutive year that she has been included in the RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings published in Education Week. Kurlaender’s ranking as one of the top 200 scholars among more than 20,000 education faculty in the United States is a testament to her impact on the field of education.
Interim Chancellor Ralph J. Hexter has announced the appointment of Lauren E. Lindstrom as the new dean of the School of Education. She holds a Ph.D. in educational leadership and most recently served as associate dean of Research and Faculty Development in the College of Education at the University of Oregon.
