Malcolm Price Laboratory Sschool

As a new faculty member here at UNI, I want to share with you my outsider perspective on MPLS. When I was researching UNI as a potential place to move in my career, the fact that UNI had a lab school was very attractive to me as a scholar and a professor. Having taught at a small liberal arts college for the past four years I was regularly frustrated by the fact that we had a child care center/preschool, but it was absolutely not a lab school. Many scholars at my prior institution in teacher education and the social sciences wished that the college leaders would re-imagine this resource so that it could serve multiple purposes for the community including scholarship and learning. So for me having a fully functional pk-12 lab school was one of many things that was attractive to me as a scholar and teacher. Having gone to graduate school somewhere that had a wonderful center for child development, that although not a full scale lab school, did serve many of the scholarly and teaching roles that one would hope for in a great lab school environment. It is my hope that now that I am here at UNI I can help to bring positive energy to the wonderful resource that we have available to us in MPLS. I am very hopeful to see the transition to a formal R&D school unfold and I am excited to part of the new set of researchers working on research with students at the school.
