Faculty member retains state quality assurance status

Nancy A. Grausam, assistant professor of education and early childhood education at Pennsylvania College of Technology, recently received notification from the Pennsylvania Keys to Professional Development of her renewal as a Pennsylvania Quality Assurance System (PQAS) instructor.

Grausam has been approved for an additional five-year period.
