proclaimed introvert, Dr. Tyree,
began his farewell by saying he
enjoyed "learning with you."

three alma maters, Pensacola
Junior College, Indiana Univer-
sity, and the University of Florida.
He has served as an adjunct, a
word he has since stopped using
due to its definition, from 1992
to 2001, when he became a full-
time Professor in the department.
During his farewell, Dr. Tyree
received a phone call from his
daughter Tracy. She congratu-

to spend more time with him.
The r.1i ... r,, I... 1 and candid
leader became slightly emotional.
Quickly composing himself, he
told the class that his own mother
couldn't say "Good morning"
without getting emotional.
Shortly thereafter, the class con-

the group, "let me know if I can
be of help."
Little does he know, his decision
to teach and share his own experi-
ences and knowledge, has helped
us in ways he could never know.

Community College Futures Assembly 2006
The 2006 Community College
Futures Assembly, sponsored by
the Institute of Higher Education
and led by Dr. Dale Campbell,
offered an opportunity to exam-
ine The New Rules of Business.
This theme was examined
through lectures by Mark. N.
Vamos, Editor of Fast Company
Magazine, and the new President
of the Association of Community
College Trustees, Noah Brown.
Assembly participants engaged in
focus groups, lead by Department
of Educational Administration
and Policy faculty and students, to
develop their own perspectives on
what they thought the new rules
of business should be for commu-
nity colleges in the future. The
focus groups were lead by confer-
ence attendees who voted via
hand-held devices. The new rules
will be published in the Commu-
nity College Journal of Research
The assembly also afforded the
opportunity to celebrate the ac-
complishments of the 30 com-
petively selected Bellweather final-
ist community colleges. Their
innovative applications provide
exposure to practices that are
successfully leading community
colleges into the future. The
work of the participants and final-
ists at the 2006 Community Col-
lege Futures Assembly clearly
support this notion.

Carlyle Ramsey Kicks-off the Florida Today Speaker Series
The Florida Today Speaker Series
kicked off on January 26th with a
presentation by Carlyle Ramsey.
Dr. Ramsey is President of Dan-
ville Community college located
in Danville, Virginia. His presen-
tation, "The Entrepreneurial
Community College," focused on
the role of a community college in
expanding access and strengthen-
ing the local workforce while con-
tributing to economic and com-
When encouraging outreach to
expand access, Dr. Ramsey re-
minded the audience "we can't
afford to pick low-hanging fruit."
One way he did so was by opening
outreach centers in various loca-
tions throughout his district.
His outreach extends to corpora-
tions as well. Dr. Ramsey spoke
of his college's outreach to eco-
nomic development. When po-
tential businesses visit the cormmu-
nity, a day at Danville Community
college is requisite, and is a key
Listening to the community is a
source often used to guide the
development of the college. Local
area leaders collaborate with the
college in meeting its goals of
access and development. The
drive and dedication of Dr. Ram-
sey, the college and the commu-

New website organization
The department has updated its
website to meet the needs of the
department. Several key changes
First, the "Degrees & Programs"
link now separates each concentra-
tion into its own distinct area.
Higher Education, for example,
has a webpage that outlines its
purpose, programs and degrees,
faculty and courses offered. It
should however be noted that the
list of classes are options for meet-
ing departmental requirements as
stated in program plans. Consult
with your advisor to develop an
appropriate selection of courses to
meet your academic interests.
Another change applies to the
"Resources & Information" page.
Here, the department provides
information, forms and links to
offices that provide crucial infor-
mation as students progress
through their studies. Addition-
ally, one may also find departmen-
tal information such as Student of

Educational Administration and Policy Courses Taught via Alternative Schedules
By Linda Serra Hagedorn
Life in the 21" century is fast
paced and technology rich. When
I came to the University of Flor-
ida, my vision included develop-
ing distance education courses
and being able to deliver them far
from the city limits of Gainesville.
I would like to report that the
initial steps of that dream have
been started. In the spring semes-
ter, Dr. David Quinn is teaching
Data Driven Decision Making on
line. Judging from the enrollment
numbers, the course will be popu-
lar. Currently two other Educa-
tional Administration and Policy
faculty are developing online
courses. Thus our department is
keeping up with the fast pace of
life and also keeping current with
But developing online courses is
not the only way the department
is reaching out beyond the Gaines-
ville area. This fall semester we
experimented with weekend
courses held on campus. These
courses, meeting 4 weekends on
Friday evening and all day Satur-
day, were very successful and well
attended. The format allows stu-
dents to drive in only 4 times per
course (spending Friday night in
Gainesville) and to more easily fit
such travel into their busy work
and personal lives.
As a department, we understand
that we must change with the
times and while we remain totally
committed to cutting edge re-
search and delivering quality in-
struction, we also acknowledge
that the means of coursework
delivery cannot remain static.
Webpage updated to serve
It is the mission of the Department of Educational Admini-
stration and Policy to develop and improve leadership in vari-
ety of educational settings and with diverse populations.
Graduates are expected to be technologically competent; to
believe in the worth of human learning; to advocate for the
interests of children, families and adults; to respect the needs
of people of all ages to continue learning; and to demonstrate
the use of collaboration and reflective practice in the pursuit
of their professional responsibilities.
