In the past year, IES has added to the ranks of its senior leadership team with the appointment of four new associate commissioners. Together with the commissioners and existing staff at the associate commissioner level, the Institute is well positioned to continue delivering rigorous and relevant research, evaluation, and statistics to the nation's education system.

Stuart Kerachsky joined NCEE in January 2008 as Associate Commissioner for Knowledge Utilization. Allen Ruby, Associate Commissioner for the Policy and Systems Division at NCER, arrived last October. Also at NCER, Elizabeth Albro was appointed Associate Commissioner for the Teaching and Learning Division in August 2007, and Thomas Weko earlier this year was named Associate Commissioner, Postsecondary Studies at NCES. » read more
