EDUCATOR NORMAN J. BOYAN HONORED FOR LIFE'S WORK

Thursday, October 1, 1998 - 17:00
Santa Barbara, CA

Norman J. Boyan, professor emeritus of education and former dean of the Graduate School of Education at UC Santa Barbara, is the seventh recipient of the Roald F. Campbell Lifetime Achievement Award. Boyan was recognized for his "extraordinary commitment, excellence, leadership, productivity, generosity, and service" in the field of educational administration by the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA).

"It's about the nicest thing that has occurred in my professional lifetime," said Boyan, who will receive a bronze eagle statuette symbolic of the award during UCEA's annual conference banquet on Saturday, Oct. 31, in St. Louis, Mo. "In all the years I have been connected with education --- I started teaching in 1946 --- this is the top achievement and the most enjoyable recognition."

Boyan was a major contributor and consulting editor for educational administration entries for the fifth edition of the "Encyclopedia of Education Research" (1982) and was editor and contributor of the "Handbook of Research on Educational Administration (1988), a project of the American Educational Research Association. In addition to authoring or co-authoring some 45 journal articles, book chapters, and technical reports, he was principal investigator for a series of grants from the U.S. Office of Education to support the initial development of the Instructional Supervision Training Program, the publication of the book, and set of training materials on the program.

Boyan has taught in public and private schools, and served as a secondary school administrator and school district administrator, university professor and administrator, and federal educational executive. His long and illustrious career in institution building includes service as the founding principal of a new public high school on Long Island, N.Y. (The Wheatley School) to changing the trajectory of UCSB's Graduate School of Education from teacher education to educational research. He came to UCSB in 1969 and retired in 1990. He served as dean of the education school from 1969 to 1980.

The Campbell Award was instituted in 1992 by the University Council for Educational Administration to honor senior professors in the field of educational administration. Selection criteria include: longtime distinguished service as a teacher and researcher in the field of educational administration; superior contributions to the field's body of knowledge; and recognized leadership efforts to improve the field, especially the preparation of educational administrators and/or professors of educational administration.
