We ask and answer tough questions — to ensure that every learner has the opportunity to reach their maximum potential.

The Tarver Entryway
Thanks to the generosity of alumnae Margaret Tarver Jason '66 and Missy Jason Pearson '93, the UNC School of Education transformed its Peabody Hall lobby into a space that invites all to gather and share ideas that will advance education in lasting ways.
A second recent renovation — the research commons — provides a 21st-century agile workspace, where our scholars can collaborate in-person and virtually to address education's most pressing and persistent problems. The research commons represents a naming opportunity for potential investors. For information on named space opportunities within the School, please contact Megan Garrett, Assistant Dean for Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (919) 962-3941.
