Abstract/ Summary

This report summarizes the activities and accomplishments of the College of Education and Human Development (COEHD) during the 2018-2019 academic year. The COEHD’s tripartite mission remains at the core of its many efforts and activities. It continues to be Maine’s leader in PK-20 Educator Preparation, and more teachers and school administrators in the state have undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Maine than from any other institution in the State. The COEHD also continues to work closely with the Maine Department of Education and the Education and Cultural Affairs Legislative Subcommittee, as well as with local school districts throughout the state. As a key part of the state’s only research, land-grant and sea-grant university, the COEHD takes both its scholarly and outreach activities extremely seriously. In recent years, the research productivity of the College has increased significantly, and the College has developed a national reputation as a result; the COEHD continues to be ranked among the ‘Best Graduate Schools of Education’ by U.S. News and World Report. Although the COEHD was not able to conduct any national searches for tenure-track faculty members during 2018-2019, it was able to use internal funds to support a number of one-year lecturers, including individuals in educational leadership, human development, instructional technology, kinesiology, physical education, special education, and social studies education.
