Shim named 2010-12 Garland Fellow -- Research exploring the impacts of skyrocketing enrollments of English language learners (ELLs) in Wyoming schools on teacher capacity to address student needs appropriately recently received a major financial boost from the 2010-12 Mary Ellbogen Garland Early Career Fellowship. Jenna Shim, an assistant professor in the UW Department of Educational Studies, is the latest recipient of the fellowship, funded by an endowment established by Garland’s father, Jack Ellbogen, in 2000. Jack Ellbogen created the fellowship in honor of his daughter’s commitment to community service and philanthropy.

UW launches Play Therapy Center -- Though the University of Wyoming College of Education has long offered play courses and training opportunities for graduate students and mental health practitioners, recent recognition by a national accrediting body is raising visibility – and expectations - for the new Rocky Mountain Center of Play Therapy Studies.

Victoria Gillis joins college as new Literacy Education Excellence Chair -- The opportunity to continue a lifetime’s research in disciplinary literacy, and the chance to engage others in that process in ways that benefit Wyoming school children, brought the College of Education’s newest Wyoming Excellence Endowed Chair of Literacy Education to Laramie this fall.
