Biographical or Historical Information

The Center for Excellence in Teaching was established in 1992. Its mission was to support the State System of Higher Education's "Twelve Goals" document. In May 2000, the center was renamed the Highlands Center for Faculty Initatives with a changed mission. The revised mission for the Center was to "foster faculty initiatives..." The original four institutes comprising the Center for Excellence in Teaching were Curriculum, Instuction and Collaboration, Ethics and Values Education, Early Education and Literacy. This changed in 1996-97 when the institutes for Early Education and Literacy were dropped and intitutes for Lifelong Learning and University Teaching and Learning were added. Then in 2000, the Center added the Collaborative for Excellence in Teacher Preparation-PA (CETP-PA) Institute. Since its inception, the Center operated under co-directors. In 1992-93 it was Ruthanne Atkinson and Robert Connors. They were succeeded in 1995-96 by Ken Adams and Dawn Snodgrass. Another change occured in 1998-99 when Mary M. Bevevino replaced Ken Adams. Donald Sheehy then replaced Dawn Snodgrass in 1999-2000. In 2002, the co-directors were Ken Adams and Donald Sheehy.  The last co-directors were Robert Hass and Susan Hagel. The location of the Center was originally at the Miller Research Center. It was relocated to McNerney Hall.  The Center closed in 2009.
