The searchfor a new dean has begun and, if all goesas planned, we hope to have the positionfilled in early 2016.

    Under Dr. Collins 12 years of leadership,the COE was empowered to innovate,change, and grow into a prominenteducation program. We celebrate justsome of Dr. Collins contributions to theCOE on pages 17-18 of this report.

    As the torch is passed, the COE willcontinue to grow and expand ourprograms, improve our quality throughinnovative assessment systems, andconnect with our communities throughstrong partnerships. We look forward tothe changes that the future will bring.

  • In the COE, liberal education is defined as both the studyof classic knowledge and the freedom for students to open

    their minds to new theories.Throughout our programs, we focus on critical thinking and democratic principles. We challengestudents and faculty to continually reassess our world and explore possibilities. Encouraged by

    liberal education, individuals explore many different subject areas and fields, providingthem with a keen awareness of others and a passion for development.

    As we prepare each teacher in our programs, the COE fosters educators who have the greatestpotential for empowering their own students, regardless of culture, language, ability, ethnicity, genderor orientation. Liberal education develops students who have a positive influence on the world around

    them ultimately carrying the skills they gain out into their own classrooms and communities.

    Assistant Professor Liz Storey pauses to capture the excitement of Convocation with a student.

    socialresponsibility

    The word education comes from the Latin root words eand duco, which together translate as I lead forth.

    Thus, the role of educator is to lead and inspire others, providing themwith the skills and knowledge they need to excel in society.

    But this responsibility extends far beyond working in our classrooms. As educators,we have the power to share knowledge within our communities. We can lead,

    shape, and improve our world. Each day, the COE embraces this socialresponsibility, whether it is through partnerships with local organizations, servingand studying abroad, promoting inclusion, or creating field-based experiences

    that improve the environment and lives of others. We are committed toour communities and creating positive changes for a better future.

    THE ABILITY TO SUSTAIN

    Examples of SustainabilityEconomicKids Food BasketIn a campaign organized by the Student Information and Services Center (SISC), the COE collects loosechange to support the Kids Food Basket of West Michigan. Money collected is used specifically to assist with the purchase of juice boxes. The COEs faculty and staff also decorate brown-paper lunch bags with inspirational messages and designs, which are used to distribute sack suppers to students in the greaterGrand Rapids area. Kids Food Basket currently serves more than 6,000 children their evening meal each day,using over 100,000 juice boxes and 180,000 brown bags each month. More information about the programcan be found at the Kids Food Basket website: www.kidsfoodbasket.org/

    PBS LearningMediaTo meet the growing demand for customizable, digital resources in the classroom, PBS LearningMedia andWGVU Public Media created a new partnership with the COE to provide student educators with the latest digital classroom tools. PBS LearningMedia delivers media-on-demand content to fuel deeper discussions and understanding of curriculum topics. In addition, the platform has a digital library with thousands of valuable resources for research and support. Education has always been at the heart of our mission, said PaulaKerger, PBS president and CEO, and by training the next generation of teachers, WGVUs partnership withGrand Valley State University will make a tremendous impact for a new generation of teachers and students.

    SocialCOMPASS/GEMS ProgramsTwo key programs within the COE serve to recruit, support, advise, and retain diverse candidates. The CreatingOpportunities, Maximizing Possibilities, Advancing Student Success (COMPASS) program recruits low-income,diverse learners currently attending GVSU, while the Growing Educators in Math and Science (GEMS) program recruits underrepresented high school students interested in the teaching profession. COMPASSbegan in 2011 using collaborative, campus-wide recruiting. Students meet monthly to receive advising andtest-taking strategies for the Professional Readiness and content area exams. COMPASS students also volunteer in local schools.

    The GEMS program was created in collaboration with Baldwin Community Schools to expose, mentor, andprepare high school students who plan to become math and science educators. During the summer, GEMSstudents visit GVSU for three weeks to take college preparatory courses in math and science, with COMPASSstudents serving as mentors to the high school GEMS students. Our first cohort of GEMS students graduatedin May 2015, and one of our first GEMS graduates began attending GVSU in Fall 2015.

    Sustainability in the COEIn the COE, sustainability efforts focus on four main areas: economic, social, cultural, and environmental. All four areas apply to the field of education, because teachers directly affect the lives of their students.We provide opportunities to dramatically improve communities and promote the power to foster sustainable societies.

  • CulturalIDI GroupIn early 2014, a group of COE faculty and staff members participated in taking the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI), an assessment tool used to gauge individual and group cultural awareness. In Fall 2014, the group began to meet monthly to discuss ways to foster a culture of acceptance, understanding, and enrichment within the COE that extends into both work and teaching. The goals of the group are to increase open dialogue about inclusivity, promote civil discourse, and develop opportunities for community engagement within the COE.

    ArtPrize EntryFor ArtPrize 2014, the College of Education was proud to have faculty member Sean Lancaster featured as an artist at Fountain Street Church. Lancasters ArtPrize entry, Antepenultimate, was a photograph collection spotlighting the ordinary faces of homeless people. As Lancaster described his work, Theseportraits provide an extraordinary perspective on the seemingly ordinary humanness of individuals, whileraising awareness to the unique and precarious situation in which they live. A professor of educationaltechnology within the COE, Lancaster has a passion for photography and a talent for capturing personalitiesthrough his portraits.

    EnvironmentalGroundswellSince 2007, Groundswell has promoted place-based K-12 education through environmental service learning.To date, 1,500 students, 70 community partners, 65 teachers, and 22 schools have participated in the programs environmental stewardship programs and high-quality professional teacher development.

    Groundswell projects engage local students through their elementary, middle, and high school classes.Teachers are challenged to address environmental issues with students while accomplishing their schools academic objectives. Groundswell projects provide students with unique interdisciplinary learning opportunities, requiring them to use problem solving, creativity, networking, communication, and collaboration to address environmental issues in our local communities. Last year, student projects included planning and installing rain gardens to prevent erosion and non-point source pollution, removinginvasive species from critical wildlife habitats, and water quality monitoring.

    Groundswells success has been noticed throughout the Great Lakes region. Over the past few years,Groundswell has received $1.46 million through contributions, grants, and in-kind support to continue providing services to teachers, students, and their communities.

    expertise

    We encounter challenges daily in the ever-changing field of education, and they give us the opportunity to test our skills and knowledge.

    It is only through hard work, research, and experience that we gain expertise in our profession and learn to effectively overcome problems.

    The COE faculty and staff are shining examples of the quality we strive for in education. We demonstrate our excellence by promoting inclusion, diversity, loyalty, and service. For many of us, our passion for education has become the focus of our lifes work,

    and we are honored to serve as role models for our students and colleagues.

    It is encouraging when we are publically recognized and rewarded for our contributions to education. But we are perhaps most motivated by the student teachers we work with.

    Through them, our skills and knowledge are passed on, improving and inspiring both GVSU and schools throughout the world.
