Kathlene Holmes Campbell

Dean, School of Education, University of St. Thomas

Description

Since Kathlene Holmes Campbell became dean in 2018, the St. Thomas School of Education has been working to increase the number of teachers from underrepresented backgrounds. This year, she submitted a proposal to join the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education’s consortium to work on this issue; Minnesota was one of 15 states selected to join. Over the next year, St. Thomas will lead the statewide effort to increase equitable access to teaching.

In addition, Campbell is ensuring state teaching standards incorporate an anti-racism lens by leading the work to update the Minnesota Standards of Effective Practice for Teachers.
