Message from Dean Dawn G. Williams
We are a core of dedicated educational professionals that prepare transformational leaders as highly qualified teachers, reflective practitioners, effective administrators and engaged researchers who influence educational policies and practices relevant to Black and other underserved populations. It is our expectation that our graduates will succeed in this rapidly changing diverse world. In order to do so, we must foster preparation programs that promote interdependence with a synergistic cross-cultural exchange of systems, values, ideas and strategies. At the HUSOE we have a paramount interest in meeting the needs of urban school communities. Daily we address social justice issues related to equity, access and opportunity. Because this is our passion, you will hear it in our discourse and see it in our practice.
We are proud to host a research center, an Early Learning Program that serves ages 3-6, an Upward Bound Program, the DC Area Writing Project, and the Urban Superintendent Academy. Additionally, the Journal of Negro Education, which recently celebrated its 80th anniversary, is HUSOE's hallmark research publication.
HUSOE holds national accreditation by CAEP and is ranked in the top 100 Graduate Schools of Education by the US News and World Report. We offer nationally recognized, accredited programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels to a diverse student population from across the nation and from around the world. As you tour this website, you will see that our faculty, students, and distinguished alumni are making a difference. Enjoy your cyber visit with our administration, faculty, and staff. Let us hear from you!
Dawn Williams, Ph.D.
