Sam Song, director of the College of Education's School Psychology program shown here with Assistant Seattle Police Chief Nick Metz, facilitates the Safe Schools event.
The second annual Impact! Safe Schools event, which brings local high school students together with city and university law enforcement officials to learn how to make schools safer, returns to Seattle University on March 11, 2014.
School Psychology Program Director Dr. Samuel Song, who has extensive academic expertise in the field of youth violence and bullying, facilitates the annual event. Students can help create a safer environment when they engage as leaders in school activities to promote crime prevention and anti-bullying, Dr. Song says.
Representatives from Seattle Police, Seattle University Public Safety, Seattle Public Schools, and the University of Washington Police Department, in addition to Dr. Song will speak at the event. Students will learn about hazing, components of a safe school, and how to become leaders and share ownership in resolving problems in their schools.
Impact! Safe Schools will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Campion Ballroom on Tuesday, March 11, 2014.
Congratulations to College of Education alumnus David M. Johnson, EdD, '87, the winner of Seattle University's 2014 Alumni Award for Professional Achievement. Dr. Johnson, a graduate of the College's Educational Leadership doctoral program, is CEO of Navos. One of the state's largest community health centers, Navos offers a full spectrum of mental health services to low-income children and adults with serious and persistent mental illness. Dr. Johnson recently won the 2013 "Visionary Service Award" by the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare and the "Evergreen Award" from Washington Nonprofits for his outstanding innovation and agility in the service of his community.
Dr. Johnson is both a visionary and a pragmatist whose expertise is often used to help develop public and private policy in health care at the local and state level. He firmly believes in the importance of respecting and working with people to recognize and then build upon their strengths.
"My work is my life's mission," he said.
Learn more about Dr. David M. Johnson.
Dr. Johnson considers the EdD he received in Educational Leadership at the College of Education as "the most transformative experience in my life. Without hesitation, I can say that every day I use what I learned in my doctoral program. It made the difference between a good career and a remarkable career."
COE Dean Emeritus John Morford, who was EDLR's senior professor and first chair from 1977 through 1991, remembers David Johnson as a student: "It was always clear that David intended to make major improvements in mental health services in our area," Dr. Morford said. "Congratulations to him on having done so."
