The School of Education has been a unit across several campuses, most specifically Bloomington and Indianapolis. It became evident during a dean's search in 2015 that the existing structure was not working. We spent a year engaged in efforts directed in part by IU-Bloomington Provost and President.

I was instrumental in producing a report to provide the Blue Ribbon Panel and its resulting Task Force to examine the question of whether or not the Bloomington campus and the Indianapolis Campus should remain one Core Campus School.
