From Monthly Message from Chancellor Howard Gillman, June 28, 2019
Distinguished Professor of Education Jacquelynne S. Eccles is one of the leading developmental scientists of her generation, the author of seminal contributions to the study of achievement-related decisions and development. Before coming to UCI, she spent many years at the University of Michigan, where she was the McKeachie/Pintrich Distinguished University Professor of Psychology and Education. Recently one of her former Michigan colleagues paid her a unique and lasting tribute.
Katie Jodl, a lecturer in the Department of Psychology at the University of Michigan, received the prestigious and coveted designation of “collegiate lecturer,” one of only four lecturers on the entire campus to be so honored this year. Collegiate lecturers are allowed to name their lectureship after another current or former Michigan faculty member, and Dr. Jodl has decided that her title will be the Jacquelynne S. Eccles Collegiate Lecturer of Psychology. Dr. Jodl will retain this title for the rest of her career at the University of Michigan. Congratulations, Professor Eccles, on this very special recognition.
