The College Literacy Division

Literacy News – Summer Edition

Dianna Sand, Chair





Since the Spring Literacy News update, the College Literacy Division (CLD) leadership team and members worked on several projects. 


For the April Board Meeting, I reported on the success of our CLD Idea Exchange, member communication updates, the activation of our webpage link, and preparations for the CLD submission to the ALER 10-Year Retrospective publication.


Throughout April and May, I canvassed members and past leaders about their thoughts on the distinctiveness of the CLD and changes throughout the past ten years.  In late May, I submitted the division’s article for the upcoming 10-Year Retrospective.  Many thanks to all who contributed notes, comments, reviews, and thoughts for this piece.


Through June, members and leaders of the CLD completed reviews of submitted abstracts for our 2018 annual meeting in Louisville, Kentucky. 


As of the middle of July, the CLD leadership team continues to work on and plan an exciting Idea Exchange for the 2018 annual meeting.


I look forward to seeing you in Louisville!
