Alumni Testimonial

"The M.A. program emphasized inclusivity and communal learning, and really stretched my critical awareness of societal and institutional barriers to education. It was very asset-based, and classes were enriched further because we learned from each other along with the professors. It is through GSOE that I was able to hone my intellectual skills and gain knowledge of critical issues in education to share with future generations.”
