Bartolini and Griffin attend CETE Conference
Posted on November 2, 2011
On October 13, 2011, Professors Vicki Bartolini and Mary Lee Griffin traveled to New York City to attend the annual CETE Conference, this year hosted by colleagues at Barnard. While at Barnard, they attended the first of several public forums planned for the next few years, For The Public Good, a multi-year, interdisciplinary project to examine the “public good,” issues ranging from the environment and education to information media and public policy.
After the Public Good event, Vicki and Mary Lee were pleased to meet and talk with Wheaton alums, Daniel Wolf, class of 2003, his wife Sara, and Diana Bondy, class of 2010. Daniel has spent his ten years since graduation teaching in the New York City public schools, and Diana is currently completing graduate work at Columbia. Vicki and Mary Lee so enjoyed hearing our alums’ perspectives on teaching, education, and “life after Wheaton.” They are the ones who will work for “for the public good” in the years ahead.
