Longtime faculty member Carl Glickman, whose pioneering work in education during the civil rights era continues to inform his classes today, was recently honored by his alma mater.
Glickman received the Outstanding Educator Award from Colby College in Waterville, Maine, during the annual Colby Alumni Reunion in June. He graduated from the school in 1968.
An emeritus professor of education in the College of Education, Glickman's decades-long career includes time as a teacher during school desegregation in the South, then leading an award-winning school in New Hampshire. He has taught at UGA for more than two decades, retiring once to pursue creative writing; he has more than a dozen books to his name, including a book of short fiction and memoir essays. More recently, he returned to teaching and now leads a graduate-level seminar each spring semester.
Colby's Alumni Association "is pleased to recognize Carl Glickman, a true pioneer in education renewal and school leadership."
