The Neag School of Education highlights EDLR alum, Miguel Cardona ’01 MA, ’04 6th Year, ’11 Ed.D., ’12 ELP as “President-elect Joe Biden’s choice to be the country’s top education official. If confirmed by the Senate, this would mark the first time a University of Connecticut alum has held a Cabinet-level position in the White House.”
CT Post mentions Sport Management alumna and WBB assistant coach Jamelle Elliott.
LLEP Ph.D. student, Pauline Batista is making an impact and inspiring others to have a voice. In the Neag School of Education article she shared, “That was when I thinking, ‘Maybe I should really get a Ph.D.’ Because people like me typically don’t have a voice,” Batista says. “But if they have the right education, all of a sudden, they have a voice. All of a sudden, the door is open.”
Congratulations to our Neag School alumni, faculty, staff, and students on their continued accomplishments inside and outside the classroom, outlined in this month’s issue of Neag School Accolades.
