 Volume 2, Number 10                                                                                      December, 2005


                                       Dear Colleagues, Students and Friends:


                                       I hope that each of you had a Happy Holiday Season, and wish for you a Happy,
                                       Prosperous and Productive New Year. I am happy to report that the College of
                                       Education had a good semester and looks forward to an outstanding Spring 2006
                                       semester. Our attitudes are positive because the College of Education is comprised
       Robert Lemons, Dean             of a group of dedicated and outstanding faculty and staff who serve an eager and
                                       industrious student body.


One of the major accomplishments of the faculty of the College of Education for this semester was the completion of the
graduate assessment system that was led by Dr. Warren Hope. An NCATE consultant has reviewed our assessment
system, and now we are preparing for our NCATE Focused Site Visit this Spring Semester. Additionally, a considerable
amount of effort went into the development of Academic Learning Compacts (ALC) for all undergraduate degree
programs both teacher preparation and non-teacher preparation programs. Mr. Wei Gu and the COE’s Assessment
Committee led these efforts.


Student recruitment was given special attention this semester and the COE expects to have three new efforts initiated
during the Spring 2006 semester. An undergraduate early childhood education program will be initiated in Jacksonville in
cooperation with the Urban League sponsored Head Start Programs. More than thirty students are expected to participate
in this program. Also being initiated in Jacksonville this semester is a graduate guidance and counseling program. More
than 15 graduate students have made application for admission to this program. The COE is beginning a master’s degree
program in elementary education in Lakeland, Florida. Approximate 20 teachers who completed our undergraduate
elementary education program there will form the first graduate class for the COE in that area.

The Fall 2005 semester concluded with the COE’s Apple Pinning Ceremony, which was well received by the graduates
and their families. That activity has improved with every effort and was led by Dr. Marian Smith and the Apple Pinning
Committee. Special thanks to Dr. Newton Jackson, our speaker for the occasion, and Dr. Debra Austin, Provost and Vice
President for Academic Affairs, for her very supportive and encouraging remarks.

I will take every opportunity to keep you apprised of the COE’s status in terms of accomplishments and challenges. If
you know of activities or information that the wider University family needs to be made aware, please don’t hesitate to let
us know. You may forward your information to the editors of this Newsletter or to me at my office. We are especially
interested in keeping up with our graduates and their career activities. Please watch for the COE’s next Gallery of
Distinction Induction Ceremony early this Spring semester. Mr. Tommy Mitchell, chairs the College’s Gallery of
Distinction Committee and you will hear from him very soon with the details.

Additionally, we are attempting to distribute our Newsletter to all of our graduates and friends. If you have not received
it, or know of others who are not receiving it, please forward your current/permanent email addresses to us and we will
see to it that you are put on the mailing list.
