The University of Georgia held a ceremony Tuesday to celebrate the naming of the College of Education in honor of Mary Frances Early, UGA’s first African American graduate and a pioneering music educator.
Two researchers with ties to the University of Georgia’s College of Education believe that amplifying the voices of underrepresented communities is the key to collective healing during times of disaster and traumatic stress.
Judi Wilson (MEd ’93, EdS ’95) will provide a strategic vision for the College’s academic and professional development programs and work with faculty to establish new programs in support of interdisciplinary research.
Colin Muething (BSEd '07, MEd '09), Cindy Quinlan (BBA '02, MEd '03, EdS '09) and JaNaè Taylor (MEd '03, PhD '07) exemplify leadership in their industries and communities and uphold the Pillars of the Arch.
Daniel Kirk (PhD '08) previously served as dean and professor of education at American University of Ras al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates, as well as associate dean and professor at the National Defense College in Abu Dhabi.
