September 4, 2012SEATTLE, WA – The College of Education at Seattle University welcomes Dr. Amy Rose as this year’s William Allen Endowed Chair and Distinguished Professor, a position sponsored by the Boeing Company. A professor of Adult and Higher Education at Northern Illinois University since 1986, Dr. Rose will assume her appointment at Seattle University in September and will serve in the role throughout the 2012-13 academic year.

She will share her expertise as a guest lecturer in classrooms as well as participate in faculty, alumni and community presentations where she will share her research. She will provide campus faculty advice on effective practices in teaching adult learners. Dr. Rose will also continue her research exploring the experience of adult refugee and immigrant learners and plans to host a national webinar during the spring term.Dr. Rose is joining the faculty at a time when the field of Adult Education and Training is changing to meet the needs of the new adult learner and the demands of a dynamic workplace. “The profile of adult learners has changed drastically in the past decade,” says Dr. Bob Hughes, Program Director for Adult Education and Training, and Interim Dean for the College of Education. “They are technologically savvy, linguistically diverse and information-driven with varied levels of skills, age and experience. The workplace has also shifted to be high-tech, fast-paced and in constant need for training.”Dr. Hughes explains that these shifts provide opportunities for Adult Education and Training programs to focus on training adult education practitioners to develop a stronger, more skilled workforce that will add value and strength to the workplace.
“It will be an honor to have Dr. Rose at Seattle University during this exciting time in adult education,” says Dr. Hughes. “Her expertise will be valuable to the entire campus.” Dr. Rose is co-editor of Adult Education Quarterly and past president of the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education (AAACE).
