Penn GSE Dean Pam Grossman was recently named Vice President of the National Academy of Education (NAEd), a prestigious organization dedicated to advancing high-quality education research and evidence-based policy. Dean Grossman will serve with newly elected NAEd President Carol D. Lee, who recently won the 2021 McGraw Prize in Learning Science

Additionally, two Penn GSE Professors — Howard Stevenson and Nancy Hornberger — were inducted into the Academy in November. They join previous inductees Dean Pam Grossman, Vice Provost for Penn Faculty Laura Perna, Professor Emeritus John Fantuzzo, Professor Vivian Gadsden, former Dean Andy Porter, Professor Emerita Diana Slaughter-Kotzin, and Penn President Amy Gutmann, a secondary faculty member of Penn GSE, in the Academy.

The NAEd consists of U.S. members and international associates elected on the basis of outstanding scholarship related to education. Nominations are submitted by individual Academy members once a year for review and election by the organization’s membership. In addition to serving on expert study panels that address pressing issues in education, members are deeply engaged in NAEd’s professional development programs.
