Fourth Annual Action Research Night in the Moreau Center.

Congratulations to the Education Department for successfully hosting the fourth annual Action Research Night in the Moreau Center!

This event is an opportunity for graduate candidates to share their action research with the UHC community. This year, seven students in the Doctorate in Executive Leadership Program and eleven M.Ed. in Teaching and Learning candidates presented the findings from their action research. There were over 100 attendees at this event, making this a productive evening of professional development for teachers and leaders from across the city. The Education Department looks forward to continuing to grow this action research event in the years to come!
