LMU School of Education Dean Michelle D. Young has been selected to serve as a board member on the executive committee of the Council of Academic Deans from Research Education Institutions (CADREI). She will assume the position for a three-year term ending in February 2024.
With an assembly of deans from more than 150 top research and land-grant institutions throughout North America, CADREI is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to prepare educators for success and to discuss and formulate plans, policies, and programs that make its member institutions more effective in their work. Dean Young’s appointment comes on the heels of her receipt of The Jay D. Scribner Mentoring Award from the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA) in November 2020, which also recognized her work in training educational leaders for the future.
“I’m honored to serve CADREI as a board member, and I look forward to working with fellow deans whose institutions are cultivating tomorrow’s educators, supporting significant research agendas, and fostering research-based practices,” Young says. ”We all have a collective responsibility to re-imagine schools and education in the post-Covid era. I firmly believe our collaboration will go a long way toward empowering all educators to forge a more equitable and just world, based on everything we learn together.”
