Office of Dean Lauren E. Lindstrom


Fall 2022

It’s wonderful to be back in person for Fall 2022 instruction and to see students, faculty and staff in the halls and classrooms again. This fall:

  • We warmly welcomed two new assistant professors to our faculty, Dr. Yianella Blanco and Dr. Alicia Rusoja. Both were hired in partnership with the Department of Chicana/o Studies in the College of Letters and Science as part of a nationwide search for scholars conducting community-engaged research with a Latinx focus.
  • We began celebrating the 20th anniversary of the School of Education’s founding. UC Davis has offered teacher education programs since 1922, and in 2002, the University of California Board of Regents approved the establishment of the UC Davis School of Education, establishing a new school to replace the campus’s Department of Education.
  • Our faculty members Torry Winn, Maisha Winn and Izamar D Ortiz-Gonzalez are offering another Quarter at Aggie Square Experience.
  • We dedicated a newly renovated classroom, the Sandi Redenbach and Ken Gelatt Learning Lab, in honor of longtime supporters Sandi Redenbach (’72, Cred. ’73) and Ken Gelatt (’67, Cred. ’68). Thanks to their generous gift, the School of Education has renovated and upgraded Academic Surge Room 2377.

If you have questions about COVID-19 requirements before you come visit us, our COVID-19 precautions page or the UC Davis Campus Ready website have helpful guidelines.

I look forward to seeing you on your visits to the School of Education Building.

In June 2017, the School of Education celebrated the arrival of Dean Lauren Lindstrom with a gathering of supporters, including Interim Dean Paul Hastings and Founding Dean Harold Levine. “When the School of Education began the search for our new Dean,” Hastings said in his remarks, “we were looking for a true educational leader, someone with demonstrated excellence in research, teaching and administration.
