Three Education Ph.D. Candidates Named Jackson Scholars
Three educational leadership doctoral students in the Eugene T. Moore School of Education have been named Jackson Scholars.
Chinasa Ordu, Edna Martinez, and James Vines have been named to the University Council of Educational Administration (UCEA) Barbara L. Jackson Scholars Network.
In November 2003, members of the UCEA Plenum voted to create the UCEA Barbara L. Jackson Scholars Network. Through this effort, UCEA is creating a network of graduate students of color who are studying in UCEA members’ educational leadership doctoral programs and who are planning to enter the professoriate.
UCEA’s Jackson Scholars Network connects future leaders by providing students of color with a system of support-- across all UCEA member institutions-- that spans from the completion of academic requirements to their entrance into professorial roles. This is achieved through modeling a mentoring experience and the professorial practices necessary to promote a successful transition into the professoriate, as well as ensuring the presence of minority faculty in UCEA educational leadership programs in numbers sufficient as to assure these programs reflect the diversity of our society and schools.
The University Council for Educational Administration is a consortium of higher education institutions committed to advancing the preparation and practice of educational leaders for the benefit of schools and children. Visit http://www.ucea.org/
