Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,
I am pleased to announce that Deanna Sands, EdD, has been appointed dean of the College of Education. Dr. Sands is currently professor and associate dean of research and professional learning at the School of Education and Human Development at the University of Colorado Denver (UC Denver). She brings to Seattle University a distinguished career as a teacher, scholar and administrative leader and comes from a university that shares our commitment to educating the whole person. Dr. Sands will officially join us on July 1, 2013.
Deeply dedicated to diversity and inclusive education, Dr. Sands has devoted much of her career to enhancing educational opportunities for people with disabilities.
An active and prolific scholar, her research has been supported by grants from such esteemed entities as the Institute of Education Sciences and the National Science Foundation.
As associate dean, a position she has held since 2006, Dr. Sands has expanded UC Denver’s collaborative research with community partners, enhanced faculty mentorship initiatives, forged ongoing partnerships with school districts and led the school’s doctoral faculty through the development of a new Doctorate of Education program in Leadership for Educational Equity. In 2011 she served as interim dean of the School of Education and Human Development.
It is an exciting time in the history of the College of Education. With the college’s hosting of Middle College High School, its important role with the Seattle University Youth Initiative, as well as additional new and proven programs and endeavors, it is connecting with the wider community as never before. With the arrival of Dr. Sands, a demonstrated leader in creating and sustaining partnerships, these efforts will be even further strengthened. We look forward to welcoming her this summer.
I want to thank Bob Hughes, EdD, for serving as interim dean. Under his leadership, and with the continued exceptional work of his faculty and staff colleagues, the college is moving forward with great purpose. I also want to thank the search committee for bringing this process to a very successful completion.
Stephen V. Sundborg, S.J.
