Dean’s Note
Gifts to the University of Michigan School of Education come in many
forms: good advice about our programs from an alumna serving as a co-
operating teacher; a generous check from an emeritus professor; a warm
welcome to join in partnership by a local superintendent, an invitation to
apply for foundation funding after a presentation. Our alumni, friends,
and supporters provide a steady flow of financial and intellectual suste-
nance for the life’s work of such a place: Teaching and learning. Re-
searching. Tackling the complex problems facing public education for
the sakes of young people everywhere.
Our Annual Report issue of Innovator gives us a chance to say, “Thank you so much for your generosity. Your
financial support helped us to accomplish so much this year, and we’re grateful.” The Annual Report issue also
allows us to take stock of our growth and progress as a learning community and as an institution, to celebrate our
strengths, and to articulate our hopes for the future.

2004 finds the School of Education strong, with nationally recognized faculty, cutting-edge research and develop-
ment projects, and talented students at the doctoral, masters, and undergraduate levels. Our ties grow stronger
with other departments and professional schools on the UM campus, in recognition that some of the best work we
do is collaborative and interdisciplinary. Stronger, too are our relationships with regional school districts, inter-
mediate school districts, and other institutions of higher education, in recognition that the problems and issues of
public education require diverse, grounded perspectives and collaborative action to address.

At the same time, like many other institutions of higher education in Michigan and other units on campus, we’ve
had to engage in belt-tightening and trimming, as our state struggles with deficit. Now, more than ever, we depend
on your largesse to do the following:

-Provide scholarships for students who are determined to address the pressing issues and needs in
public education
-Endow faculty positions, so we can continue to retain our talented faculty
-Enhance our technological capacities, so we can continue to integrate new technologies into disciplinary-
focused curriculum and instruction.
-Expand our capacity to share findings and explore the implications of research in collaboration with
teachers, administrators, and entire communities through outreach.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all the donors who are listed in these pages. We welcome your gifts!

The 2005 U.S. News and World Report rankings placed

the University of Michigan School of Education in the
top 10 for the 9th straight year. Its Higher Education
Administration program was deemed the nation’s best,
while its programs in Educational Psychology (3rd),
Educational Policy (4th), Elementary Education (8th),
Curriculum/Instruction (9th) and Administration/Super-
vision (10th) were also ranked in the top 10.

As satisfying as they are, rankings alone are not the

measure of the School. What really matters is that, as
Dean Karen Wixson wrote in her annual report to the
University Provost, “this School addresses current
ship in developing policies and practices that can
overcome educational disparities in P-16 education.
We work at the intersections of meaningful research
and professional practice and build communities that
include people working in roles ranging from classroom
teachers to school principals to university administra-
tors and researchers.”

The School’s research programs also reflect the in-

ter- and multidisciplinary perspectives so essential

Inspired by its participation in the Carnegie Initia-

tive on the Doctorate, Professor Valerie Lee has led a
group of faculty from Educational Studies in identifying
aspects of its doctoral program that could be enhanced,
especially the core courses for all students in the pro-
gram, including the research methodology courses.

Professional Service/Outreach
The Committee on Education for Equity and Social
Justice, co-chaired in 2003-04 by faculty members
Steve Raudenbush and John Burkhardt, with the active
involvement of graduate students, mounted a year-
long innovative seminar series and a course on social
justice issues in education. As Dean Wixson says, “The
ultimate goals of our Social Justice Initiative are to
improve the climate of the School with regard to issues
of diversity and inclusiveness, recruit and retain more
faculty, staff, and students of color, and align our cur-
ricula with the values we espouse regarding diversity in
our research, teaching, and professional service.”

At the undergraduate level, the Lives of Urban Children

and Youth (LUCY) Initiative, under the leadership of
Stella Raudenbush, provides students with an excellent
intellectual context for preparing to interact effectively
in a complex world. Undergraduates have the opportu-
nity to engage in the intellectual, ethical, economic, sci-
entific, and justice-seeking challenges of contemporary
society and, in particular, its urban centers. The LUCY
Initiative provides courses and co-curricular activities
that permit students to connect their academic inquiry
and their civic engagement.

Social Justice
The struggle for social justice is, in many ways, the
river into which these streams eventually flow. All of
the above would count for little if these goals were not
addressed, in terms of the knowledge generated, the
content of the curriculum, the makeup of the student
body and faculty, and the direction of outreach and
service efforts.

School of Education

Development Notes
The School of Education relies heavily on major grants to fund much of its work not covered by the University budget. As
you can see by the long list of donors published in this issue, however, gifts from individuals constitute important support
for a wide variety of projects and activities, from student scholarships to faculty research.

Your year-end gift will assist these many endeavors and may help reduce your 2004 taxes. Of course, we advise consulting
your own tax advisor concerning your personal tax situation. In general, however, the following information may help your
decision making.

Tax Benefits
Your gift may provide you with federal and state income tax benefits:

* If you itemize deductions on your federal income tax return, you may be able to deduct your contribution to UM from
your adjusted gross income. In addition, gifts of appreciated property avoid long term capital gains tax. Check with your tax
advisor for deduction and capital gains tax requirements and limitations for your situation.

* Your state may also allow a credit or deduction. For example, Michigan residents may take a credit against state tax of
50 cents for each dollar of their gift to UM, with a maximum tax credit of $100 for taxpayers filing singly or $200 on a joint

Year-End Gifts
To qualify for the 2004 tax year, checks must be in envelopes
postmarked on or before December 31, 2004 and received by
the UM Gift Processing Office by January 11, 2005. Checks
received after January 11th will be recorded as 2005 gifts.

Another option is to take advantage of our online giving service.

Friday, December 31, 2004, at 5:00 p.m. is the last day for a
donor to make a 2004 gift using Michigan Online Giving. The
gateway to Michigan Online Giving is found on the Office of
Development Web Site:

If you’d like to discuss your gift in further detail, please contact

us at (734) 764-7563 or via email at The
School of Education welcomes gifts at this time of year and,
indeed, at any time of the year. We thank you for your generous
support in the past, and look forward to continuing our great
work with the help of our alumni and other benefactors.

naturally, a source of concern for all. We would appreciate your gentle corrections and reminders if this is the case regarding your name or giving.

Campaign Goals
Our programs of research, preparation, and outreach are unique for their multi- and interdisciplinary emphasis.
Undergraduate and graduate preparation programs reflect the marriage of subject matter knowledge with teaching
knowledge and skills, and research programs reflect the multiple perspectives that are so essential for dealing with
today’s education issues. Our vision for professional service involves a conscious interweaving of teaching, research,
leadership and service that makes a difference to teachers, administrators, and communities locally, nationally, and
internationally. Faculty and students have strong disciplinary backgrounds and the School is actively engaged in col-
laborations and joint programs with a variety of educational agencies and many other academic units on campus. As a
result, we provide the best preservice and inservice preparation in education leadership, research, and practice avail-
able anywhere. The University of Michigan has been a leader in education since 1879, when it founded the country’s
first professorship in the art and science of teaching. Our vanguard position as a leading School of Education gives us
both the privilege and the responsibility of setting a course for the future. We are poised to meet this challenge head-
on. Together we can work to unite teaching, research, and professional practice in the service of the public good,
investing new hope in education, and charting the course for another 125 years of global educational leadership at the
University of Michigan.

Contributions are needed in four areas:

Student and Programmatic Support, Faculty
Support, Technology, and Outreach Initiatives.
Your help in these areas will enrich and enlarge
the learning experience of School of Education
students, and our children.
