School of Education puts spotlight on 2018 Distinguished Achievement Award winners

April 04, 2018

UW-Madison’s School of Education and many of its programs are consistently ranked among the very best in the nation.

One of the main reasons is the many dedicated and talented faculty and staff who work across the School.

In an effort to recognize some of these important individuals, the School administers Faculty and Staff Distinguished Achievement Awards. And on Wednesday evening, April 4, Dean Diana Hess led the School’s annual awards ceremony to honor this year’s recipients.

Congratulations to all of this year’s award winners and thanks for making the UW-Madison School of Education such an amazing place.
