GSE Associate Dean Stepping Down
May 22, 2007, Volume 53, No. 34

Nancy Streim, Associate Dean for Educational Practice at the Graduate School of Education, will step down from her position, effective June 30, to accept an appointment at Teachers College, Columbia University as Associate Vice President at TC and Special Advisor to the Columbia University Provost. She joined the faculty at GSE in 1988.

Dr. Streim has led GSE’s extensive university/school partnerships, including the development of the Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander University of Pennsylvania Partnership School. She has also directed the Penn Partnership Schools, a consortium of Philadelphia elementary schools that GSE assists under an agreement with the Philadelphia School District and led the planning for a new Penn-affiliated international studies high school.

According to Penn GSE Interim Dean Stanton Wortham, “I accepted Dr. Streim’s resignation with regret: for GSE and Penn, she has played so many roles exceptionally well: she’s been an administrator, researcher, grant-getter, ambassador, teacher, colleague and strategist, among many other things.”
