Celebrate the Career & Retirement of Dr. Jodi Crandall

We invite you to join us in a special event to celebrate the career and mark the retirement of Dr. Jodi Crandall, Professor Emerita and Former Chair, Department of Education, Former Director of the Language, Literacy, and Culture Ph.D. Program, and Former Coordinator of the TESOL Program at UMBC.

The event will be held on April 25, 2012, from 5 to 8 pm, on the 7th floor of the Albin O. Kuhn Library on the campus of UMBC.

Jodi will give a short, retrospective talk on her work, followed by a sharing of tributes by current and former colleagues and students as well as a light reception.

In honor of a life-time of achievement and to recognize Jodi's 14 years as the founding director of the Language, Literacy, & Culture doctoral program, we are also establishing the Jodi Crandall Fellowship for Research in Language, Literacy and Culture.
