Dr. Dan W. Butin, Dean of School of Education & Social Policy, acknowledged as national influencer

January 07, 2014
the Founding Dean of the School of Education, was named as one of the top 100 “Public Presence” Education Scholars.

The Edu-Scholar Public Presence Rankings, an annual listing of scholars known for making significant contributions to national debates in education, is compiled by Rick Hess, the Director of Educational Policy for the American Enterprise Institute and an Education Week blogger. Dr. Butin was ranked no. 80 out of a total of 168 profiled scholars. The results were published through Education Next. The rankings, Hess writes, “reflects both a scholar’s body of academic work  – encompassing books, articles and the degree to which these are cited – and their 2012 footprint on the public discourse.” This includes appearances in education and general news media, blogs and social media. “These results offer insight into how scholars in a field of public concern are influencing thinking and the national discourse.”
