Message from Dean Harriet Fayne


Our second issue of LUTE Update showcases six “Rising Scholars,” assistant professors who are doing very exciting research and publishing their findings. While topics and methods may vary, one thread runs through their collective work: LUTE Theme II- Educate for Equity. Their research reminds us that we should be mindful of inequities and advocate for social justice. We also must look for evidence-based practices that will help to close opportunity and achievement gaps.

These six Rising Scholars are only a subset of the dedicated faculty in the School of Education who are actively engaged in research.  In future issues we will introduce others who have made unique contributions to the profession and enhanced our understanding of schools and society.

Best wishes for an enjoyable and restful summer.
