Nancy C. Jordan, a renowned expert on how young children learn and retain mathematical knowledge, has become the first faculty member appointed to the Dean Family Endowed Professorship for Teacher Education in the University of Delaware’s School of Education, UD President Dennis Assanis and Provost Robin Morgan have announced.
The Dean Family Endowed Professorship for Teacher Education in the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) was established through a charitable trust created for the purpose of attracting and retaining an outstanding educator and scholar.
“Accomplished faculty members like Dr. Jordan are the beating heart of this University,” Assanis said. “Establishing endowed named professorships is a priority for our Delaware First campaign in our quest to sustain and build academic excellence, while at the same time honoring the donors and our exemplary faculty members. As an institution, we are deeply grateful to the Dean family and our other generous donors who are enabling us to recognize our most outstanding faculty.”
