Sept. 19, 2007: PDK/Hawaii Meeting

Link to the COE Dean's Presentation

An invitation from the President of Hawaii PDK Chapter:

Phi Delta Kappa is an international association for professional educators. The organization's mission is to promote quality education as essential to the development and maintenance of a democratic way of life by providing innovative programs, relevant research, visionary leadership, and dedicated service. Membership in PDK is composed of professionals in the field of education, graduate students preparing for careers in education, and undergraduates who are enrolled in or have successfully completed their student teaching. Members of Phi Delta Kappa who are already employed in the profession range from classroom teachers and school administrators to college and university professors and to educational specialists of many types. In Phi Delta Kappa, this diverse membership finds a fellowship based on common interests and a common focus on the promotion and improvement of education, with particular emphasis on publicly supported education.

The Hawai'i chapter of PDK and The Office of School Redesign (a joint project of the University of Hawai'i College of Education and the Hawai'i Department of Education) are sponsoring a dinner and reception at the Elks' Club in Honolulu on September 19, 2007 from 4:30 to 7:30 pm. We would like to invite you to join us and have an opportunity to meet the new dean of the College of Education; Dr. Christine Sorensen. Dr. Sorensen comes to the University with a tremendous background in establishing community partnerships that focus on improving the success of students. The Hawai'i chapter of PDK and the Office of School Redesign would like to formally begin work with Dr. Sorensen to promote academic achievement and ensure that all high school students in Hawai'i graduate with the knowledge and skills necessary for post-secondary education.
