This Impact issue features exciting news about SOE programs, faculty, students, and alumni who are making a difference.
- The cover story, “Finding their Voice,” shares the research and community outreach work that our social studies education faculty are doing through the iEngage Summer Civics Institute, co-founded by Dr. Karon LeCompte. On the Impact website, you can also find a video of Dr. LeCompte sharing research results and a look at iEngage in action.
- As noted in this issue’s message from Dr. Shanna Hagan-Burke, this Impact is full of faculty, student, and program accolades that stand out because of the range of the awards, which she notes is “not focused on one discipline or one person; it’s not exclusive to graduate or undergraduate programs; it’s not only about research or only about teaching; it’s all of these and more.”
- You’ll learn about all those accolades and also meet an award-winning podcaster, the national student teacher of the year, the SOE’s fall cohort of new faculty, and supporters who give to the SOE because educators are a good investment.
