Dean's Office

Office of Dean Lauren E. Lindstrom


Winter 2023

I’m pleased to welcome our students, faculty and staff back from the holiday break to the beginning of spring quarter! We entered 2023 amid heavy rainstorms and look forward to sunnier days ahead.

I have a few updates and news items to share:

  • We are pleased to announce that Dr. Anne Jones has joined our staff in the role of assistant dean of student affairs and community partnerships. She is supporting our student affairs office, communications and marketing, K-12 programs such as the federally funded College Opportunity Programs, and other campus and community partnerships. The School established this new position with support from the Offices of the Chancellor and Provost.
  • This quarter marks our 19th annual Words Take Wing celebration of diverse children’s literature, and this year we will host award-winning children’s author Aida Salazar. This program has served more than 18,000 regional schoolchildren since its founding in 2005.
  • If you’re interested in a quarter abroad in 2023, Profs. Nancy Erbstein and Jonathan London have announced that they will once again offer their class “Community, Technology, and Sustainability in Nepal.” Students will work in interdisciplinary groups with Nepalese peers on projects such as local and regional development, sustainable agriculture, water resources, food and nutrition, education, public health, democratic governance, youth participation and social entrepreneurship. The fall 2023 class will include three weeks in Nepal, and will be open to undergraduate and graduate students.

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.
