Dr. Michael Jennings, associate dean for the Consortium for Social Transformation and associate professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, was elected to the Executive Council of the American Educational Studies Association (AESA). His term on the council began Nov. 2 and will continue through 2017.


The association’s president-elect, Denise Taliafiero-Baszile, nominated Jennings for a position on the Executive Council. He was one of three nominees chosen as a council member based on a majority vote of the association’s members. His election was announced during the association’s annual conference in Toronto, Canada.


“It’s wonderful feeling to be elected to the Executive Council,” said Jennings. “I have been active with the association since I was a graduate student and I love being a member. This position is an important step in my career.”


As a member of the Executive Council, Jennings will attend bi-yearly council meetings and participate in month online discussions with the other council members. He will also be actively involved in the decision-making process for the association.


“I look forward to being able to help guide the organization into the future,” said Jennings. “I think my position sets the stage for UTSA to have significant involvement in educational studies worldwide. It’s important for our academic footprint to have someone in a leadership position within AESA.”


Also a member of the Executive Council is Dr. Theodorea Berry, associate professor in the Department of Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching.


The AESA is an international society comprised of educators, scholars, and students that discuss issues related to education and policy. The next annual AESA Conference will take place in San Antonio in 2015. For more information, visit the AESA website.
