The Office of the Dean provides leadership and administrative support for the School of Education’s outstanding programs in teaching, counseling and educational leadership. The Office of the Dean takes a lead role in school communication, partnerships, gifts, and new program development for the purpose of supporting the vision of the School.
The Dean's Office is comprised of Dean, Dr. Andrew Wall, associate dean, and two support staff. The associate dean, Dr. Hideko Sera, oversees the operation of the Office of Student Success and tends to various student needs. The executive assistant to the dean, Heather Lambeth, assists with School budget, dean's calendar, and coordinates assessment and accreditation projects.
