MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN
On Twitter and Instagram, the School of Education and Social Policy (SESP) community has embraced the hashtag #SESPlove. Those who spend some time around SESP understand why. Part of it reflects the school’s personal, family feeling. But it also involves our shared mission: Our students, faculty, and staff are motivated to make life better, whether we focus on the individual, family, organization, or country. We dedicate our teaching, research, creative work, and service to this goal.
As I begin my tenth year as a SESP faculty member and first year as dean, I’ve been reflecting on why I love SESP so much. Like so many others, I love our community, what we do, and why we do it. I also love the special ways we combine education AND social policy, because I’m convinced that this increases our societal impact.
