I am very pleased to announce that Dr. Carol L. Colbeck will be joining UWM as Dean of the School of Education as of July 1, 2011. Carol comes to UWM from the University of Massachusetts Boston, where she is Dean of the College of Education and Human Development and Professor of Higher Education. Prior to that, she served as Director of the Center for the Study of Higher Education at The Pennsylvania State University. Her Ph.D. is in Administration and Policy Analysis/Higher Education from Stanford. Her commitment to academic excellence, urban education, social justice and inclusiveness, and educational research makes her a wonderful fit for our School of Education.
I would like to thank all who provided input on the search process, as well as the members and Chair of the Search and Screen Committee, for their outstanding work in service to UWM.
