Lynch and Boston College’s Urban Catholic Teacher Corps (UCTC) are collaborating with the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) to conduct a national study about the current state of urban Catholic schools throughout the country.
When Boston College moved courses online last semester, undergraduate students studying to become teachers in the Lynch School of Education and Human Development were faced with the task of adapting to online learning both for their BC courses and their own teaching responsibilities.
The Lynch School of Education will begin offering a new master’s program in learning engineering this fall—the program is the first of its kind.
High school sophomores from St. Joseph’s Preparatory School shadowed Boston College students as part of the College Road program. College Road began because St. Joseph’s was looking for a partnership that would complement its college preparatory education.
“It was just the most shocking thing I had ever seen,” McCartney said as she recalled arriving in the devastated New Orleans. “To see that level of destruction and devastation … helped me realize that this whole system of disaster recovery and response in our country, at the time, was really broken.”
“These workers are not going away, and we will stand with them for as long as it takes and and we will coordinate our resources to support them,” said Dennis Williams of the United Auto Workers.
“There’s just a tremendous amount of incredibly strong undergraduate level scholarly work going on [in the Lynch School],” said Julia DeVoy, the school’s associate dean of undergraduate students.
Put to the test in a critical moment, Brian Eagan realized he had the necessary skills to pursue a career in special education.
DeVoy’s role as associate dean of undergraduate students in Lynch is to interface with the student population, which includes working with the Honors Cohort and the Lynch Senate, and advising students during the registration process and while planning to study abroad.
