Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, Co-Director of the National Center for Children and Families and the Virginia and Leonard Marx Professor of Child Development and Education, has been awarded the Distinguished Contributions to the Public Policy for Children Award by the Society for Research in Child Development, 2004-2005.

Diane Dean, Executive Administrator in the office of the Vice President for Finance and Administration, is leaving the College after almost a decade of service to accept a position at the College of Education at Illinois State University as an Assistant Professor in the Educational Administration and Foundations department. Dean says that she will be teaching college and university organization, governance, policy and finance. She added, "It is a tenure-track appointment, and I'm thrilled by the opportunity."

Jessica Siegel, the teacher and journalist who was the focus of the 1990 book Small Victories by current New York Times columnist Samuel G. Freedman, has joined the faculty of the Heritage School, a public high school designed by TC in collaboration with New York City public schools. The school balances traditional academics with interdisciplinary learning in which the arts are critical dimensions to all programs of study. Siegel formerly taught at Seward Park High School in New York City's Lower East Side. She has taught journalism at the college and high school levels, and directed a journalism program for ArtsConnection, which ran in six inner-city high schools in New York City.
