As this academic year winds down, organizers at the UI College of Education would like the campus community to mark its calendar for an event scheduled for the fall. The college is hosting a research symposium Sept. 23 through 25 at the Levis Faculty Center as the culmination of a year of celebration in observance of its 75th anniversary. "Change and Diversity: Challenges for Education" will feature UI faculty and alumni, as well as distinguished participants from across the nation, according to Ellen Swengel, one of the organizers. It is free and open to the public. Keynote speakers will be Nancy Cole, president of Educational Testing Service and former dean of the UI College of Education, at 4:30 p.m. Sept. 23, and Nathaniel Gage, the Margaret Jacks Professor of Education at Stanford University, at 3 p.m. Sept. 24. Individual department and unit receptions will be held Friday evening; the college will host a reception on Saturday night. In keeping with the celebratory theme, Swengel said, the 1994 College of Education commencement ceremony has been designated "75th Convocation," with a variety of activities scheduled to "commemorate the longevity and many accomplishments of the college." The 75th Anniversary Celebration kicked off in May 1993, with a program that featured Robert Leininger, former Illinois superintendent of schools and UI alumnus; former College of Education deans Rupert Evans, Myron Atkins and Cole, and current dean P. David Pearson; and UI President Stanley O. Ikenberry.
