AUBURN – Auburn University Professor Andrew M. Weaver has retired after 47 years in AU’s College of Education, where he has held the positions of professor, coordinator for graduate programs for Junior College Faculty, director of the Center for Economic Education, head of the Department of Curriculum and Teaching and associate dean for the College of Education.

Weaver’s specialty is social science education, which he has taught since his arrival at AU in 1960. He has been the major professor for 63 doctoral students, and in 2004 he won the Outstanding Faculty Award for Outreach at the College of Education. Weaver’s contributions to education extend from the classroom to working toward improving the state of education in Alabama as author of the Governor’s Reform Act of 1984 for Alabama.

Before joining the AU faculty in 1960, Weaver held positions at Park Junior High School, where he began his professional career in 1954, and then East High School, both in Nashville, Tenn.
For 38 of his 47 years at Auburn, Weaver had offices in the Paul S. Haley Center, where he was one of the first occupants when the center was completed in 1969. His years at AU encompass the tenures of nine presidents of the university.
