The Douglas P. Biklen Landscape of Urban Education Lecture Series
About the Lecture Series
Since 2005, The Landscape of Urban Education Lecture Series is dedicated to the presentation of current ideas and strategies for navigating urban education terrain in the United States. The speakers engaged for this series are well renowned scholars committed to revitalizing inclusive urban education. The School of Education invites all students, alumni, staff, faculty, and friends in the community to experience these presentations.
A generous gift by School of Education Board of Visitors member Jeryl Mitchell '81, G'83 named the lecture series in honor of retiring Dean Douglas P. Biklen. This will allow the lecture series to continue its mission and expand its audience and national reach for many years to come.
