Dean Mary Coleman comments on the impact of these three distinguished faculty members
Linda Dacey Paul Fideler Maureen Riley
As the Lesley University College of Liberal Arts and Sciences prepares to say good-bye to a triumvirate of distinguished faculty members, the school is taking heart in knowing their impact will continue past their retirement.
That is because Lesley is launching a lecture series and two scholarships to honor these professors.
Professor of humanities and history Dr. Paul Fideler is the inspiration for the Paul A. Fideler Lectures in History and Philosophy, an annual series that will attract a notable historian who embodies Fideler’s scholarship on the English Poor Laws and the contemporary welfare state, according to Dean Mary Coleman.
Professor of mathematics education Dr. Linda Dacey and associate professor of education and Director of the Center for Academic Achievement Dr. Maureen Riley are being honored with scholarship programs in their name.
“The Linda Dacey Scholarship Fund will support students majoring in mathematics education, and the Maureen Riley Scholarship Fund will support students majoring in special education,” Coleman says. “Their legacies will live on at Lesley through the students the scholarships will support and the creative exchange of ideas the lectures will stimulate. We are deeply grateful to each of them.”
