UofC President's Wife Top Official At Urban Ed Institute

fea_zimmer03.jpg

Did you know that Terese Zimmer, head of strategic initiatives at the Urban Education Institute at the UofC, is the now-separated wife of university president Robert Zimmer? 

I didn't - until I saw this blurb about the separation in the Maroon, which picks up on a recent' Crain's article about the split (here)

Zimmer has a PhD in political science and used to work with the Brown Education Alliance, according to this article.

I don't think I've seen her talk or heard anything about her work, though I do think it's interesting having more political science (and economics) types working in education.  Anyone know anything more?
