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.
