Congratulations Dean Young

donyoungIt was with bittersweet congratulations that CRDG bid Director Don Young farewell as he left to take on the position of dean of the College of Education. While we will miss his leadership in CRDG, we are happy for him and wish him well in his new role. Young first came to CRDG in 1971 and became an integral part of the CRDG science section where he co-authored ground-breaking and award-winning inquiry-based science programs. The middle-school program Foundational Approaches in Science Teaching (FAST) and the elementary program Developmental Approaches in Science, Health & Technology together span a nine-year science sequence that teaches basic science concepts through inquiry methods. Both programs included a twoweek teacher professional development institute to teach the inquiry methods that few teachers had learned or experienced at that time. Young’s expertise, in particular, involved the dissemination and implementation, and later the scaling-up, of the professional development program. In 1998 Young moved to the position of CRDG associate director, then became director of CRDG in 2003. In this role, he guided CRDG through a time of tremendous change in the education community with great insight, energy, and compassion. His door was always open and his support unwavering as we all worked to navigate the changes in our field. He leaves us now a stronger organization for his leadership, and we count ourselves fortunate to have him in the role of dean of our college.
