It is an exciting time to be part of the Graduate School of Education and Human Development as we debate and engage in some of our nation's most important policy issues. Here, we believe that education has been and will continue to be the single greatest contributor to the public good and the nation's future. I'm looking forward to meeting and discussing these critical topics with you.
