The annual Pearlie C. Dove Colloquium is sponsored by the School of Education, and takes its name from alumna and longtime professor Pearlie C. Dove, Ed.D. Dove is a Professor Emerita and former chair of the Division of Education that 40 years ago led Clark College's successful national accreditation in teacher education. The Colloquium is a testament to her legacy and the legacy of others who inspired and prepared her as an educator, innovator and advocate.

The event is open to the public, particularly the community, teachers, practitioners, scholars, and most of all students, so as to engage, direct, and invoke the best thinking on how to the address challenges, opportunities, and innovations in the world of teaching and learning.
