Elizabeth M. Hawthorne has been appointed the dean of the college of education at National-Louis University in Chicago.

Previously, Ms. Hawthorne, 58, was the academic director for the International Cyber University of Singapore, or ICUS, which designs Internet-based training programs for corporations and governments.

Officials from National-Louis University’s college of education said the 7,500-student university grants more master’s degrees in education annually than any other public or private institution in the United States.

Cara M. Miller is the new development director of the Search Institute, a Minneapolis-based nonprofit group that conducts research and provides programs to improve the lives of adolescents.

Ms. Miller, 45, will be responsible for focusing the organization’s long-term goals and overseeing corporate and foundation fund raising.

She served as the executive director of the Fort Collins-based Colorado 4-H Youth Fund from 1994 to 2000.

Patrick F. Patrick plans to step down as the chairman of Washington state’s A-Plus Commission, a nine-member group established by the legislature in 1999 to oversee the state’s K-12 accountability system.

Mr. Patrick, 59, who was appointed to the commission by Gov. Gary Locke that year, said he would resign at the end of this month. “It’s time for someone else to be the face of reform,” he said.

A former banking industry executive, Mr. Patrick plans to stay involved in education issues in the state. For instance, the Seattle resident is thinking of participating in a citizens’ initiative to change the state’s education code to focus it more on student achievement.

The commission’s vice chairman, Jose Gaitan, a Seattle attorney, will succeed Mr. Patrick.
