COE dean named one of 30 most influential

Craig H. Kennedy, dean of the College of Education, was recognized by Mometrix Media as No. 3 on a list of the 30 most influential deans of education in the U.S. Researchers with the organization combed through countless ranking systems, honors, awards and commendations in search of the top deans in the country. That data then was compiled, organized and ranked.

The write-up on Kennedy stated, “Under his guidance, UGA has watched as StartClass ranked both its early childhood education and middle school education degrees in the top 10 in the country (10th and third, respectively). Dr. Kennedy’s program has also been recognized by as having the ninth best elementary education program in the country, while AC Online recognized UGA as being home to the third best online education degree, and Campus Explorer ranked it as the fifth best school for education majors. Dr. Kennedy has also been the recipient of multiple prestigious awards, has published hundreds of articles, book chapters and books, and has given over 300 national and international presentations.”
