Dean's Annual Report
Our Annual Report from 2020 features former Dean Karen Riley and the rest of our faculty and staff considering the ways in which a global pandemic has altered the ways in which we engage one another — teaching, learning, serving our communities and conducting research. It also considers the reverberations of a renewed and long-overdue national movement for racial justice, which has challenged all of us to examine how we can effect meaningful and systemic change in order to address social injustice.
At the core of our mission is a strong commitment to creating meaningful social change rooted in deep, reciprocal relationships with our community. Our goal is to improve the human condition and the lives of those who are marginalized in our society.
This challenging year confirmed the strength and determination of the MCE community. It is clear that we have enjoyed remarkable success and remain committed to an ambitious path forward.
