The Holmes Group began in 1983 when 17 deans of colleges of education met to discuss research into other methods of teacher education. At a second meeting, they developed a two phase plan to improve standards for teacher education. The group expanded to become a consortium of 96 research universities. They addressed their concerns in three reports. In 1996, the group joined with various teacher organizations to create the Holmes Partnership whose agenda is to accomplish the goals identified by the Holmes Group. MSU’s Dean of the College of Education, Judith Lanier, as well as other professors in the College of Education, were involved in the original group.
