Who We Are: A nationwide alliance of current and former education deans, and directors/chairs of education in institutions that do not have deans, established in Spring 2016 that aims to speak and act collectively regarding current policies, reforms, and public debates in order to advance equity and justice in education. We have published several public statements that have been signed by hundreds of deans, and we are an active member of the Education Civil Rights Alliance (ECRA).
We created a Framework for Assessment and Transformation that deans are using to transform their institutions. Participants at many of these institutions are conducting comparative case studies about their use of the Framework. We meet semi-annually to support each other in this work, and we hold additional webinars, conduct sessions at other conferences, and engage in other network activities throughout the year.
