A $500,000 gift from Barbara Efaw ’59 and family was honored with action by the Board of Trustees on Friday, May 7. In recognition of the family’s generosity, the College of Education’s new student success center will be named the Barbara and Larry Efaw Center for Educator Excellence. The center is scheduled to open spring semester 2022 and will be housed in Degarmo Hall.
On April 8, a year after the initial invitation, the Student Association for Bilingual Education (SABE) and the National Center for Urban Education (NCUE) welcomed best-selling author and Chicago Public Schools (CPS) teacher Dr. Gregory Michie to deliver the keynote address for Bilingual Advocacy Week.
The National Center for Urban Education (NCUE) through the Chicago Teacher Education Pipeline (CTEP) partners with five communities in Chicago. The five neighborhoods are Albany Park, Auburn Gresham, East Garfield Park, Little Village, and Pilsen. In each neighborhood NCUE work with a community liaison from a community-based organization.
