School of Education welcomes two visiting fellows for 2011–12

Peter Groff and Julie Mikuta are serving as visiting fellows at the School of Education for the 2011–12 school year. The program is a key component of the school’s vision to bring together traditional and nontraditional education innovators and their ideas to impact education reform and change the way schools of education operate.

Groff is the former president and CEO of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools and earlier served as director of the U.S. Department of Education’s Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. He has a JD degree from the University of Denver College of Law. Mikuta completed her doctorate at Oxford University and is a partner in the New School Venture Fund. She was elected to the Washington, D.C., Board of Education and helped establish the district’s SEED Public Charter School. She also was vice president of alumni affairs for Teach for America.
