“The Landscape isn’t much different than the original Adversity Index, other than [that] the College Board [is] reporting separate scores for the high school and neighborhood indices, and students now can receive their score along with colleges,” Casey Cobb said. “I think the biggest change was the name. They switched it to Landscape to deflect criticism that the scores validly measure adversity.”
Congratulations to our Neag School alumni, faculty, staff, and students on their continued accomplishments inside and outside the classroom. If you have an accolade to share, we want to hear from you! Please send any news items and story ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This fall, the Neag School welcomes a number of visiting faculty members and also announces several new appointments for current members of the community. In addition, colleagues, friends, and guests celebrated the career of Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor Scott Brown earlier this month, who has retired from the Neag School after 39 years of service.
Beginning this fall, those interested in pursuing a master’s degree in research methods, measurement, and evaluation (RMME) within the Neag School’s educational psychology department will have the choice to study either in person at the UConn Storrs campus — or from anywhere in the world. The new fully online program is the first of its kind at the Neag School.

Each fall, the Neag School of Education welcomes submissions for several awards and funding opportunities. Submissions for each of these opportunities will close this year at 5 p.m. EST on Thursday, Oct. 31, 2019.
