Prior to her retirement from Western Michigan University in September 2010, Ms. Veeder served as assistant director of the WMU Evaluation Center for more than 26 years. Included in her many duties (supervising staff, serving as a member of several project staff projects, signing off on the proposals and reports developed by staff members, approving travel and other expenses, etc.) was proofreading/editing the many proposals, reports, correspondence, and books that were developed/written by Center staff members. In addition, she collected and wrote the information/contributions of Evaluation Center staff for the bimonthly University newsletter (PRISM). She twice served as an officer of the University’s Administrative Professional Association and received quarterly and annual WMU Support Staff Awards. In addition, she served on the staff of the Joint Committee on Standards for Educational Evaluation during the periods that Daniel Stufflebeam and Arlen Gullickson served as the chair of that committee. Two books were written during those periods, and Ms. Veeder edited both: The Student Evaluation Standards: How to Improve Evaluations of Students and The Personnel Evaluation Standards: How to Assess Systems for Evaluating Educators.
