Some Education Faculty Move to New Quarters
March 13, 2000
Cramped quarters are nothing new to the Neag School of Education, but changes on campus are giving two of the school's departments a little more elbow room.
The Neag Center for Gifted Education and Talent Development has moved into the patio level (basement) of the Tasker building. Joseph Renzulli and his group are joined there by the Accelerated Schools Project, which relocated its national center from Stanford University to UConn.
Special education experts Stan Shaw and Joan McGuire and their colleagues with the University Program for College Students with Learning Disabilities have moved out of Gentry Building and into Hall Dorm. Additional space became essential after McGuire and Shaw received a major federal grant to develop teaching strategies and tools that would make college classrooms a better learning environment for all students, but particularly for those with learning disabilities.
