The Watson College of Education (WCE) has entered into a new 3-year partnership agreement with the Southeast Education Alliance (SEEA).  WCE has a long-standing affiliation with SEEA, an organization that represents 13 regional school districts and is dedicated to the improvement of Pre-K-12 education in our region.  The new agreement, officially signed by SEEA Executive Director Linda Lowe, Watson College Dean Kenneth Teitelbaum and UNCW Provost Denise Battles on August 26, provides for a closer partnership with the relocation of SEEA offices to the UNCW campus.

Dean Teitelbaum welcomed SEEA as an extension of the Watson College’s Outreach Office and described the partnership as a “win/win” for two organizations aligned to common goals.  Provost Denise Battles also extended a warm welcome saying, “Partnerships with outside organizations are central to UNCW’s core strategy and focus.”  Director Linda Lowe said SEEA “looks forward to continued collaboration with the Watson College, and finding ways to build on a very successful partnership.” 

The official relocation of SEAA offices to the Friday Annex at UNCW is anticipated to take place in late September or early October.
