UW-Madison’s School of Education celebrated the start of the 2019-20 academic year with its annual Welcome Back Bash event on Thursday, Aug. 29.
And once again, the School welcomed a large cohort of new faculty members, with 13 talented scholars joining the School of Education’s roster since the start of 2019 — with many of those arriving just in time for the start of the new academic year.
