Office of the Dean
Dr. John E. Sisko
The Wayland H. Cato School of Education at Queens University of Charlotte prepares students to be school leaders in a variety of educational contexts - as classroom teachers and as school administrators. We mentor undergraduate and graduate students though close relationships to faculty in the university classroom and in the field experience. We seek to develop educational leaders who want to make a significant impact in the world. We offer both degree programs and add-on licensure and leadership development. Whether you are a high school student considering an undergraduate degree in elementary or secondary education, an employed teacher looking for the next step in your career, or a professional interested in a fulfilling career change, the Cato School has a program that will suit your needs.
The Office of the Dean administers academic policies and programs, in accordance with University-wide principles and priorities. This work included promosting both faculty and student research and creative activity.
