Doreen M. Tobin '74, MEd '75, interim vice president for student affairs at
East Stroudsburg University, has received the Ted K. Miller Achievement of
Excellence Award from the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher
Education (CAS). The award "recognizes outstanding accomplishments in advancing
standards of practice and quality assurance in educational programs and
services in higher education, with the goal of enhancing student learning."
Jan Arminio, president of CAS, presented the award, joined by the award's namesake,
Ted K. Miller. In her presentation, Arminio cited the selection committee's
recommendation, stating that Tobin is considered "the queen of educational
assessment in higher education having led Kutztown University's 10-year review
twice and coordinated the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education's
review of its alcohol and other drug education programs at its 14 institutions.
All three of these assessment efforts utilized the CAS Standards."
The Ted K. Miller Achievement of Excellence Award is named in honor of Miller,
the first president of CAS, a professor emeritus of the University of Georgia
and the CAS publications editor until his retirement in 2004.
A graduate of St. Pius X High School in Saranac Lake, Tobin earned her
St. Lawrence bachelor's degree in biology. She is the assistant vice
president for student services and campus life at Kutztown University,
and holds the interim position at East Stroudsburg temporarily.
