A better future starts in the classroom
The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting everyone across the globe in myriad ways. It is, first and foremost, a dire health crisis that will have long-lasting impacts on healthcare, science and the economy. No less important is the impact it will have on education. While the long-term effects of school closures and transition to remote instruction are not known, we can be sure that those who will be most affected are our most vulnerable learners—students with disabilities, English learners, those living in poverty and those impacted by trauma.
The UC Davis School of Education has long been committed to addressing education inequities at every level through the preparation of the best education leaders, researchers, and teachers in the country. Now, more than ever, we need high-quality educators who will serve as advocates for all learners, and research and policy analysis that helps us to understand pathways to student attainment and success. During this uncertain time, our faculty and staff remain dedicated to transformative research and teaching, and are working remotely to continue our mission.
Your support will allow us to continue the course of confronting and eliminating educational inequities. In addition to opportunities to support student scholarships, innovative research and transformative programming, you can support our students who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic with a gift to the Dean’s Innovation Fund, which Dean Lindstrom will allocate from for direct emergency support. Your gift, no matter the size, can have a tremendous influence on our students and in classrooms across the country.
We are humbled by the compassion, generosity and dedication of our education community during this extraordinary crisis and are grateful for your continued support. Thank you.
