IUME Founder Dr. Gordon Honored with Lifetime Achievement AwardThe Institute for Urban and Minority Education's (IUME) Founder and Former Director, Dr. Edmund W. Gordon, was honored this past weekend, receiving the Lifetime Achievment Award from the Black Student Network at Teachers College, Columbia University. Dr. Gordon most recently served as IUME's Director from 2001 until the recent appointment of Dr. Morrell, in addition to his legacy as one of the foremost scholars in psychology. His scholarship addressing the achievement gap during his distinguished career as a faculty member at Teachers College has laid the current foundation for our current social justice framework.
