In the Spring 2017 issue of Catalyst magazine,
we explore how scientific literacy spurs student civic
engagement. We also introduce Dean Lauren Lindstrom, hear about a
new partnership between our Words Take Wing program and the
Mondavi Center, and explore the ways that having even one
African-American teacher can have long-lasting benefits for
African-American students. Download the magazine and read bonus
content. Want to receive a copy of the magazine in the mail

At a special gathering of faculty
and staff in May, we thanked Interim
Dean Paul Hastings for his year of service to the School

make the transition to a new dean after Founding Dean Harold
Levine’s 15-year tenure.
The School of Education celebrated
with 227 graduating students and their family and friends at our
graduation celebration in June. Browse
