About the author (2003)

William M. Timpson Professor, School of Education After finishing my bachelors degree in American History at Harvard University in 1968, I spent four years teaching junior and senior high school students in inner-city Cleveland. I moved on to complete a doctorate in Education Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Since 1976 I have taught at Colorado State University (CSU), although a four year leave of absence allowed me two years as Director of the Center for Teaching at University of California, Santa Cruz, and two more years at the Tertiary Education Institute at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. At CSU, I have routinely taught courses on diversity and have infused diversity content into my other courses.
