Change Agent: Robert Newman Sheets

Chairman of the Morgridge College of Education Alumni Board, Sheets is known as the keeper of the torch (appropriately,his ancestor held the two lanterns in the Steeple of Old North Church for Paul Revere). He has been an innovative force in arts education as the first Director of the Colorado Council on the Arts and Humanities, the National Chairman of all the State Arts Councils in American, and worked with the National Endowment for the Arts. As an arts consultant, Sheets’ work extended to California, Hawaii and American Samoa.“Since my graduation from DU in 1961, I have witnessed a dramatic evolution for the University and, particularly,for the College of Education. A great university merits a great school of education, and the Morgridge College of Education is just that. We have a commitment to the highest quality of preparation for all educators. Morgridge not only trains the best teachers, the College also enlightens the human spirit.”
