Spring is a time of new beginnings and change. This year, it is especially true for the University of Georgia College of Education.
As you flip through the pages of this magazine, our College is celebrating hundreds of new teachers, allied health professionals, and sport scientists as they graduate and move into the professional world. It's a time-honored tradition that reinforces the excitement and hope that a new beginning can bring.
Changes are also taking place in the leadership of the College. We bid a fond farewell to Craig H. Kennedy, who brought smart, measured leadership to our programs. His tenure also brought changes to senior leadership at the College, including a new associate dean for academic programs, a new and expanded role for the associate dean for research and graduate education, and a new position—an associate dean for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
I am both honored and humbled by the trust that has been placed in me as the new dean of the College of Education. I look forward to working with faculty, staff, students, alumni, and partners from across Georgia and beyond as we move the college to the next level.
As we embrace the new beginnings for our College and the changes the upcoming year will bring, we remain committed to the pillars on which we pride ourselves: Our ability to connect to new ideas and learning, our passion for innovation in and out of the lab, and the drive to inspire others to follow our example of innovation and service.
