Swaby Endowed Professorship Reaches Goal of Half-Million Dollars

September 1, 2010

The COE is pleased to announce that the Dr. Barbara Swaby Endowed Professorship for Reading has reached its goal of raising of a half million dollars.

A few years ago community leaders, friends of the college, faculty, and alumni spearheaded efforts to recognize Dr. Swaby's contributions to the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, the College of Education, the state of Colorado and the Colorado Springs community. To do all this they established an endowed professorship in her name. This tribute would not only be an honor for Professor Swaby but also to those who will hold the position and continue the reading clinics she has offered for many years.

The goal of the Endowment is to attract the most talented and visionary faculty all while continuing to offer free reading clinics to the children of Colorado Springs.
