Dr. Shirley S. Schwartz Urban Education Impact Award
The Council of the Great City Colleges of Education, an affiliate group of deans working with urban school leaders, presents the Dr. Shirley S. Schwartz Urban Education Impact Award each year at the Council's Fall Conferences. The award is named in honor of Dr. Shirley S. Schwartz, the Council's Director of Special Projects and staff liaison with the colleges of education. The award honors an outstanding partnership between a university and an urban school district that has had a positive and significant impact on student learning.
Officials from Omaha Public Schools and the University of Nebraska at Omaha receive the Dr. Shirley Schwartz Urban Education Impact Award from at the 63rd Annual Fall Conference in Louisville in 2019.
