2004: School Builds Capacity to Serve and Grow

National Science Foundation

Just two years after its founding, the School of Education is making steady progress toward building its leadership and funding capacity to grow and serve the region’s education community. With the establishment of a Board of Advisors, the School gains key support and guidance from a group of regional leaders in education, business and government. A major grant from the National Science Foundation enables the School to strengthen its commitment to providing the very best professional development for teachers and serving as the professional home for teachers statewide.
