Two new associate deans appointed

by Steve Sullivan
Two new half-time associate deans of education have been appointed in the College of Education. They are Larry Ebbers, professor of professional studies in education, and Dan Reschly, distinguished professor of psychology. Reschly also will serve as associate director of the Research Institute for Studies in Education. The appointments were effective Sept. 16.

David Williams, current associate dean of education, has announced his desire to return to teaching and research. He will remain in his administrative position through the end of this month for a smooth transition.

"David Williams has served the college loyally these past few years and now is assisting us in the transition," said Camilla Benbow, interim education dean.

Ebbers, who served as assistant dean for the college from 1976 to 1984, has administrative experience, as well as a strong grasp of education within the college and in state and national realms, Benbow said. Ebbers received a Miller Faculty Fellowship for 1996-97 and the Robert H. Shafer Award for Academic Excellence as a Graduate Faculty member from the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators in 1996.

Reschly has held a joint faculty appointment with the College of Education and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences since 1975. He has earned a national reputation for his research in school psychology and assessment, and oversees several funded research projects, said Benbow. Reschly is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and a Charter Member of the Iowa Academy of Education. He currently serves as a member of the National Academy of Sciences' Panel on Goals 2000 and the Education of Students with Disabilities.

"Larry Ebbers and Dan Reschly will bring new energy and vision to the College of Education," Benbow said.
