A welcome from Dr. Susan Rodger, Acting Associate Dean of Graduate Programs

Dr. Rodger will take over as Associate Dean of Research as of January 1, 2013.

I am very pleased to provide a message of welcome to the inaugural edition of Research in Action: Western Education's Research Report.

Through both our research mission and the work we do, we strive to create conditions where children and families thrive. Our strategic priorities, including making innovative contributions, building strong and reciprocal relationships both within and outside the university community, and demonstrating excellence in scholarship, guide us as we work together in service of children and families.

We are proud to be part of a community of scholarship that is driven by shared values and the appreciation that education can change lives, strengthen communities and transform society. We look forward to sharing this journey with our partners, colleagues and friends across campus, across our community, and beyond.

We hope you enjoy the first edition of Research in Action!
