|Retirement reception will honor David Marshall, Ursula Hovet|
Please join the Department of English at the North Dakota Museum of Art from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Thursday, April 24, for a retirement reception honoring Ursula Hovet and David Marshall. Hovet, currently an administrative assistant, joined the Department of English during the summer of 1976. She also taught German in the Department of Modern and Classical Languages over the years, and has taught at the American College of Norway. She helped found the UND Children's Literature Conference held each October, and maintains a vibrant international presence for students and professors alike.
Professor Marshall joined our faculty in 1980. He is an internationally recognized linguist and Fulbright scholar whose work has attracted Eastern European students, Fulbright Fellows and teachers to this campus. He has held teaching appointments in Europe, China, and the Soviet Republics during his tenure at UND. He co-founded our department's new program in Writing and Editing, and has placed ESL and linguistics students all over the world. He is currently working as a consultant, editor, and contributor to IF Midwest and for several international linguistics journals.
Everyone is welcome to help us recognize and thank Ursula and David for their hard work and generous spirits which have opened our campus and community to the world. -- Sherry O'Donnell, chair, Department of English.
