Dean, College of Education & Integrative Studies
A lifelong advocate of education, Peggy Kelly joined the College of Education & Integrative Studies in September 2008. Previously, she was professor and associate dean at CSU San Marcos’ College of Education, where she had tremendous experience completing accreditations, raising funds and improving technology in the classroom. She regularly publishes and presents on technology standards, enhancing curriculum with computers and training teachers to use technology. Her earlier experiences teaching at the elementary level and training middle school and secondary teachers in mathematics also expanded her knowledge of the field.
Kelly has received several awards recognizing her efforts in integrating technology and education. Most recently, she received the Outstanding Leadership Award from the International Society for Technology in Education.
She received her doctorate through a joint study at Utah State University and UCLA. She also attended San Diego State University, where she earned a master’s in mathematics education and remedial reading and a bachelor’s in social sciences and mathematics.
