2005 IHE Report News

Dear Colleagues, The fortieth anniversary of the Institute of Higher Education in 2004-05 occasioned many celebrations. Perhaps our most prized birthday present was an anonymous gift of  $500,000 to establish the Zell Miller Professorship, honoring Georgia’s former governor and senator who has championed higher education throughout his career. Additional  gifts have established the Zell and Shirley Miller Graduate Fellowship to support one of our outstanding doctoral students.

Perhaps the most lasting impact of IHE’s 40th anniversary year in 2004-05 will be the outstanding new faculty who will join the Institute in fall 2005. Professor Sheila Slaughter,   from the University of Arizona and, most recently, the National Science Foundation, will be the first chairholder of the Louise McBee Professorship at IHE. Associate Professor Christopher Morphew joins IHE from the University of Kansas.
