Join AACTE’s Education Deans in Discussion: Leaning in and Leading Through Crisis

3d stainless human social network and leadership as conceptWe learned so much from our education deans during the 2021 Annual Meeting that we are hosting a webinar on April 29 to dive deeper into leaning in and leading through the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impact of systemic racism on campus and within their communities.

Educator preparation leaders, specifically, are managing the twin crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic and racial injustice within and across the nation’s institutions. We can all agree that the shift we experienced in our personal and professional lives as we witnessed horrific tragedies grounded in racism and discrimination continues to rock our schools and communities. As equity-minded leaders, three deans addressed faculty and student needs by starting with empathy and ending with action.

This webinar is a follow-up to the Annual Meeting Deeper Dive session: Leading in the Time of Crisis. Our presenters will move beyond describing the adjustments they made during the crisis. They will expound on how educator preparation leaders can, and should, lean into moments of crisis in order to lead faculty, staff, and students through to a new, more equitable normal.

 The presenters include the following deans at AACTE member institutions:

  • Gaëtane Jean-Marie, College of Education, Rowan University
  • Kimberly White-Smith, LaFetra College of Education, University of La Verne
  • Marcie Wycoff-Horn, School of Education, Professional and Continuing Education, University of Wisconsin, La Crosse

Please join us. Register for the webinar:
