Ellen Condliffe Lagemann will be the next dean of Harvard University's graduate school of education, university President Lawrence H. Summers announced last week. Ms. Lagemann, 56, currently serves as the president of the Spencer Foundation, a Chicago-based philanthropy that finances education research.

Ellen Condliffe Lagemann

A prominent historian of education, Ms. Lagemann has also been a professor at New York University since 1994 and taught previously at Teachers College, Columbia University. In July, she will succeed Judith D. Singer and John B. Willett, who have served jointly as acting dean since former Dean Jerome T. Murphy stepped down last year.

Carl D. Glickman

A faculty-search committee at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos has chosen Carl D. Glickman for the first Roy F. and Joann Cole Mitte endowed chair in school improvement. Mr. Glickman, 55, will begin his new role at the 23,000-student university in August. He currently is a professor of education at the University of Georgia in Athens. He will continue to work as a senior adviser to the Georgia League of Professional Schools and as a member of the National Commission on Service Learning, an initiative spearheaded by former U.S. Sen. John Glenn that promotes community service.

Milo J. Cutter and Liz E. Wynne have been hired to lead the Minnesota Charter School Resource Center at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey Institute in Minneapolis. Ms. Cutter, 53, is the co-founder of the 100-student St. Paul's City Academy, the nation's first charter school. Ms. Wynne, 52, is the principal of the Twin Cities Academy, a 170-student middle school in St. Paul. Both will continue to work at their schools while leading the center. Financed in part by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the center helps public charter schools.
