The New Dean of the College of Education at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina

André Green is the new dean of the College of Education at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. He was a professor of leadership and teacher education and associate vice president for academic affairs at the University of South Alabama. Dr. Green also served as chair of the department of leadership and teacher education, associate dean of the College of Education and Professional Studies, and executive director of the Center for Integrative Studies in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

Dr. Green said much of his career has centered on efforts to improve literacy, and he plans to continue those efforts at ECU. “During my career, I have designed and implemented summer science, mathematics, and reading enrichment programs for elementary and middle school students,” he said. “Although I absolutely love science and mathematics, literacy/reading was at the center of the program because knowing how to read directly impacts performance in science and mathematics. It is harder to do science and mathematics effectively if you cannot read. In fact, life is just harder when a person does not know how to read or write effectively.”

Dr. Green earned his bachelor’s degree from Alabama State University. He holds a master’s degree in chemistry from Hampton University in Virginia and a doctoral degree from Virginia Tech.
