Even during a year of extraordinary challenges, the Gevirtz School at UCSB has been researching, documenting, and innovating. The Fast & Curious (virtual) event happening at the SB Public Library is a showcase for what's been happening. We also talk with Dean Milem about lessons from a challenging year and the work to be done.
Dr. Jeffrey Milem is Professor and Jules Zimmer Dean’s Chair at UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School of Education. Dr. Milem came to UCSB in 2016. Before that he was the Ernest W. McFarland Distinguished Professor in Leadership for Educational Policy and Reform in the College of Education at the University of Arizona. Much of his research and academic career has focused on issues of access, social justice, and racial equity in higher education.
