Saying Good Bye
In a time of drastic change it is the
learners who inherit the future.
Eric Hoffer
(1902 1983)

The College of Education is re-structuring and
the Department of Educational Administration
and Policy will no longer remain a department.
At the time of this writing the exact nature of
the restructure is unknown. However, history
is the best predictor of the future and the
history of the University of Florida is a strong
and proud story of a university that will
persevere despite tribulations.

In addition to the restructure the College will
experience change due to the exit of three
professors. Dr. Kathy Gratto who served the
College for more than 11 years is retiring. She
will be spending her time in Women's
Ministries as well as being more of a full-time
grandmother. There is no way to express the
contributions that Dr. Gratto has made to the
department and to each and every student who
passed through it. As graduate coordinator
she assisted students to assemble their
programs and to progress through them. She
was always a listening ear when students had
issues. Dr. Gratto is one of those "once in a
lifetime" people that exudes selflessness and
virtue. She will be sorely missed, but
everyone who loves her is thrilled for her new
adventure and new life.

Dr. Linda Serra Hagedorn who served the
department as professor chair will also be
leaving after 3 years of service. She has
accepted a position as Professor and Director
of a research institute at the Iowa State
University. You can read more about her
position at: http://www.rise.hs.iastate.edu/

Change abounds. May it bring positive results
for all.


The Retirement of Dr. Phil Clark

After more than 35 years of dedicated
service, Dr. Phillip
Clark has retired from
the College of
Education (effective
December, 2007). As
the Chair of the
S \ Department in which
Dr. Clark served
(Educational
SAdministration and
, Policy), I am writing
this piece to express my gratitude to my
colleague and friend as well as to express my
personal sense of loss.

The first descriptive term that enters my head
when I think of Phil Clark is "team player."
Phil always (and yes, I do mean ALWAYS)
pitched in when a job needed to be done. Be
it committee work, representing the college
on the faculty senate, or heading a capital
campaign, Dr. Clark was ready and poised to
say "I will do it." Not only did Dr. Clark "do
it" but he also did it well. The second term
that enters my mind is "student oriented."

Dr. Clark has chaired and served on too
many dissertation committees for me to
count, but I am sure that virtually every
student who had the privilege to work with
him will attest to his mentorship and
guidance. In addition, Phil is an excellent
teacher as illustrated by his very high
teaching ratings from students in his courses.

I would like to relate a few facts on Dr.
Clark's career: He earned his doctoral
degree from Western Michigan University in
Educational Leadership. Shortly thereafter
he commenced his employment at the
University of Florida as a professor and
Director of the Stewart Mott Davis Center for
Community Education. Dr. Clark maintained
the Center until the day of his retirement with
Leadership Ledger 3









funding from 53 research and training grants.
The majority of the Center's focus was on
development of community education
throughout the nation and elsewhere in the
world. He is currently selecting materials
related to his grants and the Center's library
for the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation
archives.

Among the many honors in his career, Dr.
Clark is a charter member of the National
Community Education Hall of Fame as well as
the Florida Adult and Community Education
Hall of Fame. He was awarded the Phi Delta
Kappa Distinguished Service Pin, the Charles
Foster Award for exemplary service, teaching
and research, and the National Community
Education Association's Distinguished Service
Award. He was recently granted Professor
Emeritus status by his colleagues and the
administration of the University of Florida.

Although Dr. Clark is the author of two books
as well as many monographs and articles, I
have heard him express several times that he
felt his professoriate expertise was best
expressed in his service to the University of
Florida, the College of Education, the
Department of Educational Administration and
Policy and to his discipline.

I am pleased that Dr. Clark has agreed to serve
the department in the future as an adjunct and
perhaps also as a consultant. However, I
acknowledge that I will see him less and that
he will not be among us as often or in the same
context and for that I am saddened. From a
personal view I will miss my friend and
supporter. The term "gentleman and scholar",
derived from a 1786 poem by Robert Burns, is
often applied to indicate someone deserving of
respect, esteem, and admiration. I think the
term appropriately describes my colleague,
Dr. Phil Clark.


Retirement Celebration

The Department of Educational
Administration and Policy hosted an open
house to celebrate and honor the
professional legacy and career of Dr. Phil
Clark. Approximately 70 students, alumni,
faculty, administrators, friends, and family
attended the event that was held at the home
of Dr. Linda Serra Hagedorn.

The 2008 Community College Futures Assembly

ORLANDO, Fla.-The Community College
Futures Assembly announced January 29th that
Brookdale Community College, New Jersey, the
Community College of Baltimore County,
Maryland, and the University of Hawaii-Maui
Community College, Hawaii, were this year's

The Community College Futures Assembly issued
a call for Bellwether Award nominations in the fall
of 2007, and 30 finalist colleges were competitively
chosen from the applicants. Ten finalists were
selected in each category: Instructional Programs
and Services, cosponsored by the National Council
of Instructional Administrators; Planning,
Governance and Finance, cosponsored by the
Council for Resource Development; and Workforce
Development, cosponsored by the National Council
for Continuing Education and Training. All finalists
presented at the Assembly and one winner was
then selected in each category.

The Community College Futures Assembly, now in
its 14th year, convenes annually as an independent
national policy forum both for key opinion leaders
to work as a "think tank" in identifying critical
issues facing the future of community colleges, and
to recognize Bellwether Finalist colleges as trend-
setting institutions. For more information about the
Bellwether Awards or Futures Assembly, consult
the Community College Futures Assembly Web
site at http://www.coe.ufl.edu/futures, e-mail
futures@coe.ufl.edu or call 352-392-0745 ext. 280.

will again be held in Orlando, Fla.

Pilar Mendoza
Dr. Mendoza is Co-PI of one of the
four IGERT pre-proposals selected
by the University Research Office to
submit to the NSF. The Integrative
Graduate Education and Research
Traineeship (IGERT) program is a
multidisciplinary initiative to develop
doctoral programs for the education
of the next generation of scientists
and engineers. Given the large scale


of these grants, NSF invites only
four pre-proposals and, from these,
only two are invited for full
submission. Dr Mendoza et al.'s
pre-proposal titled IGERT: Efficient
Healthcare Delivery Systems aims to
develop new leaders that combine
expertise in operations and policy
analysis in healthcare systems,
bolstered with practical expertise
acquired through a variety of health
partners in the area. Dr. Mendoza
developed a comprehensive
assessment plan of the proposed
innovative doctoral program. The PI
of the proposal is Dr. Hartman,
Professor and Chair of the Industrial
and Systems Engineering
Department and the other two co-
PIs are Dr. Duncan, Professor and
Chair of the Department of Health
Services Research, Management,
and Dr. Sahni, Distinguished
Professor and Chair of Computer &
Information Science & Engineering.
