"Beyond impressed... It is one of those things when you work with the special ed population—you don’t ever limit what they can do."

Thrilled at the work of our staff and support staff of the Mason LIFE program (post-secondary program for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities) to move the entire program online this past semester when the rest of the university went to a virtual format due to the pandemic. Ninety-three classes, 32 support sessions and 74 employment sessions a week were moved virtually thanks to the willpower of nearly 100 support staff (undergraduate and graduate Mason students)!

A successful semester culminated this past Saturday with the celebration of 13 Mason LIFE students!

We were saddened to hear of the passing of former CEHD Dean Jeff Gorrell.

He was a kind and gracious man who served as dean of CEHD from 2001-09. He was also a professor in educational psychology and conducted and published extensive research on cognitive modeling and teacher efficacy. Dean Gorrell was also a very talented artist, especially with watercolors.

Our sincerest condolences to Dean Gorrell's family and friends.

“Education is still very important to me. Being an educator on my team is still something I’m very into and was something I really grasped onto during my master’s program.”

Educational psychology alumnus Molly Owens ('15) is using many of the same skills he learned as a master's (and bachelor's student in psychology) student at Mason in her current position as technical recruiter for Facebook.

Owens, who also worked for Google, credits much of her success to the opportunities (in the classroom and in the form of internships) at Mason. In addition, Owens interned for the State Department's Sports United program, which partnered with Mason's Center for Sport Management.

When it was announced that classes would be switching to a virtual format, our Athletic Training program faculty, led by assistant professor Candace Lacayo, and the preceptors at clinical sites quickly came up with a new plan to make sure their graduate students would be able to complete their proficiencies or skill assessments.

That's led to many students discussing with their preceptors over video chat or using family members or roommates as "patients" as they practice treatments.

Check out this story highlighting grad student and Fairfax resident Jennifer Cooke (pictured with her husband, Tom, and their eight children) and the help she has received from her preceptors, faculty and children to make sure finishes her master's degree this spring!

There's still time to help out this Giving Day!

For many of our students, the CEHD Student Emergency Assistance Fund is the only source of support that they can access.

We have several students who have lost their jobs as a result of the mandatory social distancing and stay at home orders that have forced the closure of non-essential businesses, including retail, fitness centers, and entertainment. Thus, students are scrambling to figure out how to pay the rent and their bills.
