Education dean named to accreditation council

Tue, 07/23/2013

LAWRENCE — Rick Ginsberg, dean of the School of Education, has been named to the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation board of directors. The organization is dedicated to improving teacher preparation through evidence-based accreditation.

The Council was formed recently when the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education and Teacher Education Accreditation Council agreed to form a single accreditation body in order to provide a singular voice on the topic and promote positive reform. The group's first task will be to review and approve a new set of standards for accrediting institutions of teacher preparation. More than 900 teacher preparation providers will take part in the council's accreditation system.



What is the wingspan of a Jayhawk? At Commencement 2015 we found out. Some graduates were walking — flying — down the hill with arms around each other’s shoulders. Others lifted their hands to the sky with exultant shouts. Fist pumps, high fives, and bear hugs. This was a day to greet with open arms. They wouldn’t make the sleeves of graduation gowns so oversized unless they wanted us to spread our wings. What is the wingspan of a Jayhawk? Wide enough to soar to the great heights that await us.
