Dr. Kathryn M. Moore, dean of the College of Education, will step down from her position effective May 15. After a study leave, Moore plans to return to teaching and research in the college’s Department of Adult and Higher Education in August 2010.
Moore has served as dean of the college since 2000. In that time, the university established the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation on Centennial Campus and began a new undergraduate degree in elementary education.
Provost Larry Nielsen said he would convene a search committee and conduct a national search for a new dean beginning this summer.
