Associate Vice Chancellor (interim)
University of California, Berkeley
My doctorate in higher education administration (HEA) at GW gave me added knowledge and preparation to take on more prominent leadership roles in the higher education landscape. I'm thankful to GW and I'm glad that what I have learned continues to allow me to support and educate our future leaders, citizens, and movement builders during their college years.

Dr. Lois F. Berlin
Interim Superintendent
Alexandria City Public Schools
I started work in the Alexandria City Public Schools as a preschool teacher the year I completed my GSEHD program and earned my master's degree. That was in 1980! The program prepared me well for my work with young children with special needs. Now I have returned after a 13-year separation from Alexandria and its good to be back where I spent 24 rich and fulfilling years of my career.

I interned in DC Public Schools, improved my counseling skills in GSEHD’s Community Counseling Center and landed a great position working as a high school counselor for low-income, first-generation, college bound students.
