Warner School of Education
- The Warner School formed a new Council for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (CEDI) in fall 2020 to better understand and advance equity, diversity, and inclusion at Warner. CEDI is composed of faculty, staff, student, and dean’s office representation. In conjunction with the formation of the CEDI, the Warner School welcomed Dr. Anika Simone Johnson to the Warner community as its first Director of Equity and Inclusion.
- The Center for Learning in the Digital Age (LiDA) provided critical resources for the University and the K-12 community to respond to the challenges posed by the pandemic. LiDA played a key role in helping schools and organizations to better capitalize on technology in educational settings. The LiDA Center is led by former Dean, Raffaella Borasi.
- The Warner School’s Center for Urban Education Success (CUES) launched a new research webinar series that will feature research leveraging expertise across the University toward creating learning environments that support success for all students, particularly students who come from historically marginalized backgrounds. In just five years, CUES has expanded and now includes Horizons at Warner, a community program that engages Rochester city students in meaningful and authentic learning experiences on River Campus during the summer and ongoing engagement throughout the school year.
- All classrooms in LeChase Hall have completed a full-scale technology update to support the Hyflex instruction throughout the building. This will provide ultimate learning flexibility for students when needed.
