We are delighted to share with you the Spring 2014 edition of Educate Magazine, showcasing the work conducted by our School of Education faculty, staff and students in collaboration with our community partners. Our theme for this edition is ‘Working at the Intersection of Teaching, Research, and Community Service’. As a School, we take pride in working with our community partners to provide real-world research and learning opportunities for everyone involved in these activities. Our activities provide much-needed resources and support for local organizations, while also developing new knowledge, and preparing our students for their future careers. The articles in this edition of Educate provide examples of how work that combines teaching and research serves as the basis of service to the community, the state, and the nation.
