Outgoing San Diego Unified Superintendent Carl Cohn will become a distinguished leader in residence at San Diego State University’s College of Education in January, after departing the school district.

As a distinguished leader, Cohn will lecture students, consult staff on projects and programs, and conduct his own research and writing, a San Diego State press release announced. His work will be tied to the National Center for Urban School Transformation, the City Heights Collaborative and the college’s new doctorate program in education leadership. According to the press release:

“I’m delighted to be associated with a college of education that is committed to partnering with K-12 school systems, especially those urban districts in the region who will need extraordinary new leaders to raise student achievement for all those students who, historically, have been left behind,” said Cohn.

Cohn takes the new position Jan. 16.
