Audrey Kleinsasser, Director

Audrey Kleinsasser has directed the Wyoming School-University Partnership since 2005.  Also a professor in the Department of Educational Studies, she directed the university’s Ellbogen Center for Teaching and Learning from 1999-2005.

During that time, the Ellbogen Center received a $351,000 U.S. Department of Education Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education award.  That work formed the basis for what has evolved into statewide initiatives in life sciences and writing. The initiative brings together faculty from public schools, community colleges, and the university to examine student work and find ways to make the transition from high school to college more successful.

With colleague Jane Nelson, Audrey recently published “Leadership for Learning: A Model of Faculty Development for Research Universities” in the 2008 To Improve the Academy volume. She and Nelson also collaborated on the 2003 book, Warming up the Chill:  Teaching Against the Structures.

A native South Dakotan, Audrey began her teaching career as a secondary English and German teacher. She earned a Ph.D. in educational psychology and research from the University of Kansas in 1988.  She received her B.A. from Augustana College (South Dakota) with majors in English and German (1973) , and her M.A. from the University of South Dakota in educational administration (1981).
