April 9, 2021 – On February 19, 2021, it was announced that Dr. Karen Riley, Dean of the Morgridge College of Education, would be leaving to join Regis University as Provost. Dr. Bruce Uhrmacher has agreed to serve as Interim Dean of the Morgridge College of Education, starting May 1, 2021.

Dr. Uhrmacher has been a long-serving member of the MCE faculty, with expertise in curriculum and instruction as well as research methods and statistics.

Dr. Uhrmacher has served as both past Chair of the Educational Research, Policy, and Practice department and current Interim Chair of the Higher Education department.  Having earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and two masters degrees at Indiana University and Harvard University, respectively, Professor Uhrmacher was awarded a Ph.D. in the design and evaluation of educational programs from Stanford University.

MCE is extraordinarily fortunate to have Dr. Uhrmacher lead MCE through the transition to our next Dean.  Dr. Uhrmacher is a deeply thoughtful teacher-scholar and caring leader who exemplifies DU and MCE’s commitments to the highest standards of integrity and collegiality.
