Ganley Named SES Dean; Partida Assumes Key Teacher Ed Role

DeLacy Ganley named SES Dean.
LEADING SES: Professor DeLacy Ganley (seen here, in 2011, congratulating a participant in the TEA Fellows program) has been named SES Dean.

Provost Patricia Easton has announced the appointment of Professor DeLacy Ganley, who has held the role of interim dean of the School of Educational Studies (SES) since the start of this year, as the school’s dean upon the unanimous recommendation of the SES faculty.

Easton’s announcement was sent to the campus community this week and said, in part, that Ganley “has proven to be a gifted administrator and leader, gaining the confidence of her faculty, her peers, and the CGU administration.”

Since her arrival in 2003 as co-director and then sole director of the Department of Teacher Education, Ganley has secured more than $17 million in grants for the department (of which more than $8 million, Easton noted, was the result of grants personally authored by Ganley).

Ganley’s many achievements include spearheading the creation of the Allies of Dreamers certificate program (to provide teachers with training to support undocumented students) and the establishment of the Claremont Native American Fellowship (to boost the number of Native American educators serving Native American populations around the country).

In addition, Easton’s announcement included the news that Eddie Partida, a doctoral student in Education who has held the position of Teacher Education’s interim director since the start of this year, has agreed to be the program’s director. Partida is also Teacher Education’s long-time STEM Coordinator.

“SES has a distinguished history and many successful alumni,” Easton’s announcement concluded, “and I am confident that it is well-positioned for even greater future success.”
