PARK CITY, Utah -

The Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education has received a national honor. The Colorado-based State Higher Education Executive Officers Association presented Teresa Lubbers with its Exceptional Leader Award at its annual meeting in Utah.

SHEEO says the award is given to a current state higher education executive officer who "has shown exceptional leadership, a commitment to higher education, a contribution to the greater good, and service to the SHEEO Association within the last year." The association says Lubbers' efforts to improve completion and on-time completion rates for Hoosier students and aligning higher education preparation with workforce needs contributed to the award.

"As a long-standing legislator and now for years in her current post, Teresa has upheld standards of the highest quality in her commitment to education," said Purdue University President Mitch Daniels. "As a friend of almost half a century, I may be permitted to note that the excellence of her character equals or even surpasses the quality of her performance of her public duties."

The association also presented the following awards during the meeting:

  • Exceptional Agency Award: The Office of the Idaho State Board of Education
  • David L. Wright Memorial Award:  Andrew Rauch, Director of Institutional Finance at the Colorado Department of Higher Education
  • Perspectives
