From A Brief History of the Graduate School of Education, GSE, a 2007 Alumni Association Newsletter celebrating 75 years of GSS.:

Under Hugh Petrie’s leadership (1981–1997), faculty reorganized the school and the name, Graduate School of Education, was chosen to reflect the professional nature of the school. In addition to improving upon its long-standing programs, GSE solidified its teacher education program, learning and technology initiatives, and school-university partnerships.
