As a part of NAV1GATE, a new orientation day at UNCG, the School of Education hosted freshmen and transfer students who have declared a major within the School. Dean Randy Penfield welcomed nearly 200 students to the School of Education building, encouraging and reminding them, “You are going to change the world. You are going to change lives.”

The group learned more about the SOE’s five bachelor’s programs from current students before breaking out into groups to spend time in two sessions with faculty and staff. Sessions included introductions to the SELF Design Studio, the Michel Family Teaching Resources Center, study abroad in the SOE, and the Professions in Deafness major.

Dean Penfield and all of the faculty and staff of the SOE are excited to follow the class of 2021 throughout their journey in the School and cannot wait to see how these students will transform the field of education!
