Aims professor named to national education associationSubmitted on: 04-06-2007
Aims Community College Developmental Math Professor Jeanine Lewis was elected as the treasurer for the National Association for Developmental Education. Lewis traveled to Nashville over Spring Break to be inducted and attend a national developmental education conference. She will be responsible for all of the finances and report filing for the national association, which includes 2,400 members in 29 chapters representing all 50 states. Lewis comes to the position after serving as the president and treasurer of the Colorado chapter in the past. She has been a full-time professor at Aims since 1995 and serves as co-chair of the Developmental Education department at the college. “Our local figures reflect the national trends that the majority of students coming into college directly out of high school have one or more needs in developmental education,” Lewis said. "We are working with the community and school districts to build bridges so that students are better prepared coming into college." NADE seeks to improve the theory and practice of developmental education at all levels focusing on students’ academic success. The group’s motto is, “Helping underprepared students prepare, prepared students advance, advanced students excel.” For more information on the organization, visit www.nade.net.
