Happy new year, and I hope that “spring” semester (with slush falling from the sky and below zero temperatures just in the last two weeks!) is treating each of you well.]

This is an exciting time in the SOE. Below, I call your attention to a series of domestic and international education policy-related events in the days and months to come, in addition to on-campus events as our Dean search process continues.

A few questions have come up among students about our who our program coordinator is. Valerie Collier, very capably stepped into this role at the beginning of the academic year after Wendy Threadgill, our previous Program Coordinator changed positions within the School of Education last summer. Please direct all program coordinator specific inquiries to Valerie.

We are in the process of revising our recruitment strategies for within and beyond Loyola. If you have any suggestions, please share them with me. Meanwhile, I wish you a healthy, productive and stimulating semester. Thanks for joining us on the journey!

Best regards,

Kate Phillippo

  1. CEPS Annual Progress Report

The time has come to prepare your annual progress reports and share them with your advisor. This process provides an opportunity for you to: 1) get your advisor’s feedback on your course of study, 2) ensure that you are on track to the successful completion of your program, and 3) check in with your advisor about how the program is going for you so far and on your upcoming academic needs or goals.

Please complete the fillable report form for your program (these are all posted on the CEPS Sakai page and under the Resources/Forms headings on the School of Education website) and upload it to Sakai under CEPS Program, “SUBMIT Annual Report” tab on the left). For dual-degree law students, please complete the relevant portions of the form for the CEPS program in which you are enrolled.

Your advisor will then review and discuss it with you before signing it and submitting it to Valerie Collier, the fabulous CEPS Program Coordinator.

This report is due to your advisor by 3/1. If you have any questions about this form or what it is asking of you, please ask your advisor directly.
