Welcome to the Department of Educational Leadership! Transition has been the theme this summer and fall. I’d like to take the opportunity as the new department head to congratulate department members Rich Schwab and Casey Cobb. Rich has returned to the Neag School Dean’s Office and Casey has become the Associate Dean for Adademic Affairs. I am also excited to welcome new faculty members Justin Evanovich, Erica Fernández and Jen Michno to EDLR as well as joint appointments in Policy, Josh Hyman from the Department of Public Policy, and in Adult Learning, Eric Bernstein from the School of Dental Medicine. We also are thrilled to have faculty member Richard Gonzales into a new role within the department as the Director of Educational Leadership Preparation Programs. Many positive changes, to say the least. I encourage you to take a look at what’s new in EDLR. - Jennifer Bruening
