CURL Director Phil Nyden retiring

CURL Director Phil Nyden retiring

After serving as CURL Director for 20 years, at the end of this academic semester (Spring 2017) I will be completing my phased retirement from Loyola. I will be continuing my work on selected projects over the following year until fully retiring in summer 2017. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the many staff, faculty, students, and community colleagues over my two decades at CURL (and 37 years at Loyola University). We have all built CURL into a distinctive, successful, and vibrant collaborative university-community research center. I am looking forward to watching CURL and its partners continue work addressing social justice issues in upcoming years. I know that I will continue to be in touch with many of you in the years ahead.
