Dr. Jean Haar, Dean of the College of Education at Minnesota State University-Mankato and a Ph.D. alum of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Educational Administration, was recently awarded the Department’s Impact Award for her influence as an administrative leader.
The award, which is in its inaugural year, recognizes a distinguished alum of the Department who has made a significant impact in the field, communities, and organizations. Dean Haar’s professional work and accomplishments, since receipt of her doctoral degree in 2002 were the basis for her selection.
Kaleb Briscoe, a doctoral candidate in the Department of Educational Administration at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has been awarded the Department’s inaugural Inspiration Award. The award is presented annually to a student in an Educational Administration program to recognize academic contributions, intellectual curiosity, and scholarly achievements that inspire students, staff, and faculty.
Kaleb is currently a Graduate Research Assistant in the Department, assisting faculty with teaching, research, mentoring, and other duties.
One of the values CEHS espouses is dedication to excellence. Another is valuing community. On April 12 CEHS faculty/staff gathered at the Sheldon Museum of Art to salute this year's faculty, staff, and student award recipients in CEHS. Each one is an example of excellence in teaching, research, creative work, engagement, mentoring as well as dedication to supporting the CEHS mission.

Terry McTier Jr., an EDAD alum, was recently awarded the position of Assistant Professor at Ohio University starting next fall 2019.
McTier came to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to pursue a master’s in student affairs. The choice, however, was random. He said he decided on an institution by closing his eyes and picking one on a map, and Nebraska was his choice.
