We, like our colleagues across campus, have experienced a general reduction in budget, but are pleased to have successfully kept class size at a level that supports our goal of personalized attention and instruction.
Faculty members have been awarded sabbatical and single semester-leaves, and the recipients have used their leaves for research and planning that has resulted in collaborative research, program development, and publications.
We also are proud of the scholarship opportunities available to our candidates. The Division of Education has been offering scholarships to candidates in both the elementary and secondary education programs since 1980. Approximately 210 students have received scholarships to assist in their educational expenses while obtaining their teaching license at UMM. About $183,175 has been given to our Alumni over the past 26 years.
