Message from the Dean
It is hard to believe that November is here, and we have already reached the midway point of the semester. Over the past several months, the Seidel School of Education and Professional Studies faculty, staff, students and alumni have had a lot to celebrate. This year we have added 15 new faculty members to our ranks to assist with retirements and support growing enrollment. In this newsletter, you can learn more about these new faculty. We also have highlighted many outstanding accomplishments of our faculty and students and events and activities in which we have participated. On a sad note, we lost one of our dear colleagues this fall. Dr. Ernie Bond of Teacher Education passed away in September. Please read more about Ernie’s impact on students and colleagues in this newsletter. He is missed by all.
We have a very busy year ahead of us as we participate in the University’s reform of General Education, discuss alignment of programs, and maintain and/or pursue national accreditation for all of our majors. Regardless of the larger conversations, we continue to enjoy being instrumental in the development of young professionals. Engaging students in activities both in and out of class is at the heart of what we do. I hope you enjoy this edition of the Seidel School of Education and Professional Studies newsletter.
