A Message from the Dean


Dear School of Education Community,

The current COVID-19 outbreak has created unprecedent challenges for our schools and communities. Although our SOE faculty and staff are not working on campus while UC Davis operations have been suspended, we remain committed to our mission to transform education through the preparation of the best education leaders, researchers and teachers in the country. We will continue to support our School of Education community through these stressful and rapidly changing times.

Our faculty and staff are currently preparing to teach Spring quarter courses remotely and our Teacher Education program is working closely with state licensing agencies and school districts, to support students in completing their credentialing requirements. In keeping with UC Davis protocol, all in-person School of Education events have been canceled or postponed at this time, and our research activities have been adjusted and reduced wherever possible to minimize the spread and possible impact of the coronavirus.

I’m very proud of all the members of the School of Education community. Collectively, you have responded with incredible patience, flexibility and dedication to doing what is best for students, staff, and faculty. Thank you.


Lauren E. Lindstrom
