A nationwide alliance of current and recent 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. In 2017, EDJE released two public statements, endorsed by over 230 deans and 17 national organizations. EDJE is governed by a Steering Committee, and holds semi-annual meetings for all network members.
