Doctoral Students and Candidate Present at 2019 NCARE Conference

NCARE Conference

Reich College of Education (RCOE) students and faculty members gave presentations at the 2019 North Carolina Association for Research in Education (NCARE) annual meeting and conference, which was held February 28 - March 1 on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The RCOE was a conference sponsor.

Dr. Jennifer McGee, an associate professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, served as this year’s conference chair. In addition, McGee was installed as NCARE’s 2019-20 president.

McGee said, “NCARE provides an excellent opportunity for graduate students and faculty to network and share their research. It was founded in the 1970s as a way for faculty across North Carolina to stay connected and has had many prominent NC researchers on its board. It's my honor to serve in this role in order to advocate for educational issues and to support future researchers.”
