Hardee leads College of Education as new dean

Dr. Sheri Hardee is the new dean of UNG’s College of Education, but it is not a new setting for her. Hardee has worked at UNG since 2009 and had served as associate dean since 2015. She began her new role in January.

As the college’s chief academic officer, Hardee leads planning and implementation of its academic programs, defines strategic priorities, and builds strong relationships with private- and public-sector partners.

Hardee has a doctorate in social foundations in education, and both a Master of Arts and a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of South Carolina.

She has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in the social foundations of education and has published articles in journals such as Teaching Education, The Journal of Education Foundations, Critical Questions in Education, and Thresholds in Education.

“We have such talented faculty and staff in the College of Education, and I am truly excited to have the privilege of working with them in this new capacity,” said Hardee.
