Welcome Back from Dean Shari Tarver Behring

Shari Tarver Behring

Welcome back to spring 2023 in the Michael D. Eisner College of Education! We are here to ensure a positive start to the semester for our College of Education students, with our department offices, credential office, and Dean’s office open in-person five days a week for support. In addition, we are offering classes both in-person and virtually or hybrid, when appropriate, in order to extend greater flexibility to our students. As always, our college’s top priorities continue to be the success of our students and programs, and the safety and well-being of our students, staff, faculty, and the community we serve. We look forward to the new year with renewed hope and enthusiasm.

Here’s wishing everyone a safe, smooth, and stress-free start to 2023!
