Congratulations to Joliette Mandel (M.A. ’22, Liberal Studies), who received the Provost’s Prize for the most outstanding thesis/capstone project in the M.A. in Liberal Studies program for her paper “Equitable Assessment for Elementary-Aged Dual Language Learners.”

The thesis was an outgrowth of a doctoral-level course on New York City education and an accompanying policy conference led by Professor David Bloomfield (GC/Brooklyn, Urban Education), acting executive officer of the Ph.D. Program in Urban Education.

Bloomfield, who advised Mandel on the thesis, called the paper an “outstanding policy analysis with recommendations, combining sophisticated research methodology and original insights into a significant public issue.”
