We are thrilled to share that Dr. Brian Dinkins will join our faculty in August of 2022 as an Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership and Director of EPPSP! Dr. Dinkins started his education career as a Special Education teacher at Arlington High School and has since served in a variety of roles including Principal, Athletic Director, and Dean of Students in schools across Indianapolis. He is a 2007 grad of our EPPSP program, and he currently serves as the Coordinator for District Culture, Climate, and SEL in Indianapolis Public Schools. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from students, faculty, staff, and alumni in response to his interview in the College of Education. We are confident Dr. Dinkins will bring excellent leadership and vision to the EPPSP program AND great ideas and energy for recruitment and retention in our undergraduate teacher education programs. Please join us in congratulating and welcoming Dr. Dinkins! We want to thank the search committee for their excellent work on this search. Sending gratitude to Dr. Catherine Hagerman Pangan (chair), Dr. Katie Brooks, Dr. Suneeta Kercood, Dr. Brandie Oliver, Dr. Brandy Mmbaga and Mr. Trae Heeter!
