Retired education prof donates papers to university’s archives

The papers of Carl Glickman, a retired UGA education professor, have been donated to the university’s archives and are now housed in the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library in the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Library.

Glickman’s collection, which spans 1968-2012, is organized for those wishing to research different eras of educational change, practice and policy at local, state and national levels; various periods of school site practice; and individuals who led organizations to transform traditional schooling.

The papers include media coverage and research reports of the various UGA/college partnerships with public schools, including the Program for School Improvement, the 21st Century Plan with Clarke County Schools, the Georgia League of Professional Schools, the Atlanta Project with the Carter Center, the Rural School Challenge of the Woodruff/Annenberg Initiative and other collaborations linked to the larger reform efforts to rethink schooling with a public purpose. Included are detailed recommendations for statewide reforms commissioned by Georgia governors Zell Miller and Roy Barnes and later by the senior policy staffs of several presidential campaigns.

Glickman’s career began in 1968 as a Teacher Corps intern in the rural South during the desegregation of schools. He was later a principal of award-winning schools in New Hampshire. For three decades, he served as a UGA faculty member in the departments of curriculum and supervision, educational leadership and social foundations. In 1997, he was named University Professor. After retiring from UGA in 2001, he held the first endowed chair in education at Texas State University, San Marcos from 2002-2004 and then returned to UGA for three additional years as Scholar in Residence mentoring junior faculty.
