HQ Happenings
Dear UCEA, it’s hard to believe that the summer is almost over! I hope you were all able to take some time to rest, relax, and rejuvenate. Even as HQ implemented a “slow down” July, we continued to work on projects and ideas important to you and UCEA.
We are pleased to welcome Cal Poly Pomona as our newest full member! Please visit their website to learn about their faculty, students, and programs. I look forward to having their wonderful students and faculty as part of our community!
We also very pleased to welcome Mariama Nagbe (UT 2021) as our new Post-Doctoral Research Fellow. Her expertise in organizational critical analysis and higher education experiences will enhance our continued work and development. This, of course, means that Davis Clement, who has been an invaluable member of Headquarters, is moving on. He begins as Assistant Professor at Eastern Michigan University, and we wish him the very best.
Lastly, I want to draw your attention to our new reinvented UCEA Café series which asks the question about the role of leadership preparation in confronting and addressing some of our nation’s social and racial injustices, particularly in schools. The first Café was hosted by Dr. Terri Watson, Please take a listen!
I know that this semester is starting with the same uncertainty that we experienced over the last eighteen months. Please continue to take care of yourselves and loved ones. We are here as a community to face whatever challenges lie ahead and are here to support you in whatever way we can.
As always, feel free to reach out at any time!
Adelante UCEA!
Mónica Byrne-Jiménez
Executive Director
