A Message From Our Department Chair

Dr. Marjorie Campo Ringler

Dear Department of Educational Leadership Faculty, Staff, and Supporters,

I hope this message finds you in good health and high spirits. As we embark on a new academic year, I am delighted to extend my warmest welcome to each one of you. The start of a new academic year brings with it a renewed sense of purpose, excitement, and boundless opportunities for our department to flourish.

One of the key pillars that sustains our department’s excellence is our commitment to fostering an environment that encourages innovation, collaboration, and a relentless pursuit of preparing scholarly educational leaders. We have an outstanding team of faculty, dedicated staff, and passionate students who are all driven by a shared vision of advancing our field and making a positive impact on educational systems and institutions.

As we embark on this new academic year, I would like to draw your attention to an important initiative that will play a pivotal role in our department’s continued success: our fundraising campaign. This campaign is designed to provide vital resources and support for our students’ research and professional development endeavors. Your generous contributions have the power to shape the future of our department and empower us to reach new heights of achievement. We strive to enhance students’ education by offering opportunities for them to present their research and service-learning projects at national professional associations.

I invite you to join us in this noble endeavor by making a contribution, no matter how large or small. Your support will enable us to invest in our students, engage with them in cutting-edge research, and create opportunities for them that will shape their futures and contribute to the betterment of the educational institutions they lead.

As we move forward into this new academic year, let us do so with unwavering determination, a sense of purpose, and a shared commitment to the success of our department and educational leadership in our region. Together, we can achieve greatness, overcome challenges, and make a lasting impact on eastern North Carolina, the state, and the world.

I look forward to another productive year where we deepen our contributions to leadership in education.

Go Pirates!

Marjorie Campo Ringler
