“Dr. Remley’s experiences as an academic leader and preK-8 practitioner will be valuable to the faculty, staff, and students of the School of Education,” said UNT Dallas Provost Betty Stewart.
Dr. Remley replaces Lisa Hobson who served as Interim Dean of the School of Education. Dr. Hobson recently assumed the role of Special Assistant to the President: Partnerships and Initiatives.
"I am excited to join the outstanding team at UNT Dallas. I look forward to encouraging and supporting the faculty to be passionate educators and serve the students of our university,” said Dr. Remley. “Working together, we will continue to build an innovative School of Education to prepare the teachers of the future, serve the community, and meet the educational needs of the region and the state."
