COE is the place to be!
Great things are happening in the College of Education at Louisiana Tech University! We are so excited about sharing the good news with our alumni, friends, faculty, staff, current students and future Bulldogs. We have exciting changes taking place including recent streamlining of efforts that has resulted in the development in the Office of Academic Affairs which serves both graduate and undergraduate COE students. This change has led to another great development with a Louisiana Tech University COE Alum, Dawn Basinger, recently being named Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. Dr. Basinger's left willingness to provide leadership to the new unit and advance the college is much appreciated. She is pictured to the left. We are thrilled she has agreed to serve in this capacity and help support our students and faculty. In addition to the establishment of the office related to Academic Affairs, there has also been the establishment of the Office of Outreach and External Funding. The purpose of this division will be 1.) to recruit, retain, and remain connected to effective educators, stellar students, and other stakeholders 2.) provide support to faculty, staff, students, and partners pursing external funding to support and conduct high quality educational efforts, and 3.) highlight successful efforts in scholarship, research and service by COE. We are hopeful that that with these two new visions we can better serve those within our COE and showcase the great work that is being done!
