On Nov. 7, 2018, the Urban Environmental Education MAED program held its Fall Gathering of graduate candidates, alumni and faculty. Provost Ben Pryor and School of Education director Rachel Oppenheim joined UEE director Sue Byers in co-hosting the event announcing Antioch’s ongoing commitment to UEE program and students. The UEE program is designed to prepare educational leaders from diverse backgrounds to work in urban cities.
“We lead with a social justice and equity lens as we approach environmental education, balancing theory and practice that will cultivate educational leadership, authentic community engagement and environmental literacy,” Oppenheim said.
Students from multiple cohorts gathered to talk about how we can build our program and the Antioch community to leverage our strengths, mission, and to provide support. “This talented group generated exciting ideas to promote the program and the work they are doing in the community,” said Oppenheim.
UEE is accepting applications for the 2019-20 academic year. If you have any questions, please get in touch by emailing Sue Byers at [email protected]
