Happy Fall, everyone!! 🍁🍂 After a summer hiatus, the UCEA Spotlight is back.
I hope the start of the semester has been a gentle one. Here at MSU the leaves are starting to turn, students are realizing that the semester is flying by, and faculty are wondering when they will get their Convention papers done (that last is a joke … but all too real). As in all things, I hope you are able to take some time to enjoy the start of another academic year full of possibility and memories to be made!
I am also happy to introduce Dr. Jerome Graham as HQ’s new Associate Director! He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience on the role of race and class in educational policy, school climate, and student well-being. Along with Dr. John Yun, also HQ Associate Director, he will do great things for our community. Please join me in welcoming him to UCEA HQ!
