Dean Johnson Named 19th Most Influential Dean in Education
Larry Johnson, Dean of the College of Education, Criminal Justice and Human Services, has been ranked 19 among the 30 “Most Influential Deans of Education in the United States.” The recognition comes from Mometrix Test Preparation, a Texas-based, global test preparation company. The rankings considered state and national awards and honors, education program rankings, individual degree program rankings and the level of pay received by the institution’s alumni. Their goal was to showcase how these selected deans “…have had an invaluable impact not only on the field of education as a whole, but also on the lives of the future teachers of America whom they have shepherded through their programs.”
Dean Johnson was selected because of the high rankings of CECH’s e-learning programs, rankings of the Teacher preparation programs, the increase in the college’s diversity, individual recognition he has received, and the efforts to build a community in the college. When asked about being selected Dean Johnson asserted, “While it is a great honor to be selected this recognition is really a reflection of the collective effort of everyone in the college to provide innovative programs that prepare students to maximize their ability to have a positive impact and to be contributing members to society.”
