SOE Stories in 60 Seconds or Less

In 2014, we hatched a plan to use social media to deliver all the Ole Miss School of Education news you need in 60 seconds or less. The result was The Education Minute. Each month, we tell the stories of real people who make the SOE great.

Watch out for our 15-second menu videos on social and choose stories that interest you. Check out our minute-long features on the SOE website each month, where we interview SOE students, alumni and faculty. You can always pitch an idea for a future story online or by emailing
