Remembering our friend, colleague and educator
SEATTLE – Seattle University Associate Professor Michael Silver, who led the College of Education’s educational leadership program for the past 10 years, died in a Bellevue hospital Tuesday after a long illness. He was 66.
A former superintendent, Silver was hired by the College of Education in 2004 as director of the educational administration program, developing and teaching courses in leadership and administration for principals, superintendents and program administrators. He was also chair of the Department of Professional Studies.
