The College of Education and Human Services (COEHS) is continually
asked to take a leadership role in the urban education arena--nationally,
regionally and locally; to serve as “dot connector” for a growing array of
regional initiatives; and to provide research to inform the decision-making of
educators and philanthropists. To address these issues, the Center for Urban
Education and Policy was initiated through the Robinson Eminent Scholar
Endowment Fund at UNF established by the late Fred Schultz. The Center aims to
foster collaborative efforts to catalyze educational leadership from all
sectors in the community and develop a core body of knowledge that can
effectively guide policy and decision-making. Ultimately, this initiative will create
a new sense of partnership between COEHS faculty and staff, the Dean’s Education Advisory Council,
and community educational stakeholders.
Panelists included FLDOE Deputy Chancellor of Educator Quality, Kathy Hebda, DCPS Superintendent, Dr. Nikolai Vitti, COEHS Dean, Dr. Larry Daniel, and First Coast High School Teacher, Blair Nolan.
This event was co-sponsored with Jacksonville Public Education Fund on May 21st.
