- LiaFaith Reed, former AU M.Ed. student

I wanted to influence the field of education; I wanted to know if I was making a difference. This led me to the master's in education program where I learned leadership models and policy evaluation skills, which helped me attain a position where I knew I was making an impact in the field.
