Welcome to DISE!Welcome to the Department of Integrated Studies in Education (DISE). Whether you are a new or returning member, thank you for being part of our community! Our department is home to teachers, learners, researchers, and administrators looking to make an impact on society in the multifaceted field of education. Through your involvement in DISE, you’ll see that although educational concepts and skills are often related to school curricula and pedagogy, they also extend to and are woven throughout a multitude of exciting career disciplines and universal contexts.
We are teachers striving to inspire young minds in classroom settings, problem-solvers seeking to change humanity through leadership and advocacy, scholars driving forward new discovery through practical application social science research, and so much more. Through principles of mentorship, inclusion, and activism, we hope to make our world a better place through education.
I hope your time in DISE provides opportunities for new learning and insights. Whether it leads you to exactly what you had set out for yourself or takes you in unexpected directions, our dedicated faculty and staff are here to support you in your academic journey. As Interim Chair, I hope to connect with as many members of our department as possible. Please say hello if you see me on campus or reach out at any time. I would love to hear from you.
Wishing you a year of growth, meaningful connections, and discovery.
