Dean's Welcome

Bristor The College is embarking on a journey to discover our future. The College of Education is OUR College. Strategic thinking/planning is OUR way of doing strategic planning.

I have asked John Pisapia, Professor in Educational Leadership, to coordinate our trip. John will be working with a steering committee and all of you to insure that our journey is fruitful. I have appointed, with the advice of department chairs, the following members of the steering committee: Peggy Goldstein, Noorchaya Yahya, Penelope Fritzer, Robert Zoeller, Michael Frain, Patricia Maslin-Ostrowski, Lydia Bartram, Deena Wener, and Valerie Bristor to work with John during this process.

The steering committee has developed our work plan. I have cleared my schedule to work through the Strategic Thinking Protocol and ask that you fully engage in the process. In this way we will have produced a plan for OUR College that will guide our work over the next 3-5 years.

Let's enjoy the journey together!
