The state Senate yesterday unanimously passed a resolution praising UMD’s College of Education for “100 years of creating knowledgeable and transformative educators, who improve communities throughout Maryland and the world.”
Sen. James C. Rosapepe (D-College Park), who introduced the resolution on the Senate floor in Annapolis, praised Dean Jennifer King Rice and other members of the college for their contributions, including sharing their expertise with the Kirwan Commission on Innovation and Excellence in Education and leading new efforts in Montgomery County and Prince George’s County public schools.
“As the College of Education looks to its next 100 years, we are committed to partnering with the state and our local communities to advance excellence, innovation and equity in education and to prepare future generations of students and educators to lead the way,” Rice said. “A strong democracy and a thriving economy depend on an excellent and inclusive education system.”
