Language Center Staff News

Rachel Sherman Johnson has left her position as the graduate Language Center Assistant Coordinator to accept an internship in the Center for International and Cultural Education at Gustavus Adolphus College, her undergraduate alma mater. This new position aligns well with her academic research interests and professional goals. She remains enrolled in her PhD program in Comparative and International Development Education here at the University of Minnesota, and plans to defend her dissertation, “Creative Minds Abroad: How Students in Design Majors Make Meaning of Their International Education Experiences,” in Spring 2016.

Rachel made invaluable contributions to the Language Center during her two years in the position. In addition to serving as the supervisor of the main office staff and operations, she brought her academic experiences and communication skills to many projects across the department, including data analysis for the PACE Project, brainstorming ideas for Languages Across the Curriculum integration, and forging connections with language units outside of CLA. We will miss her warm and compassionate personality, her passion for language education and student service, and her ability to collaborate thoughtfully on any project.

The search for a new graduate Assistant Coordinator is in progress.
