Dr. Mia Thomas-Ružić retired this year after many years of service to the Department of Linguistics as a TESOL instructor, advisor and administrator. Among many other things, she was the heart and brains behind our TESOL BA certificate program, and even as she approached retirement, was the developer of our forthcoming hybrid online graduate certificate in Teaching TESOL with Technology. 

Students (past and present), faculty, and staff joined together in early May to celebrate Mia’s passion, intellect, humor, and good works during her time at CU. Pictured here is Mia (joined by a few junior linguists!) in the Paleontology Hall of the CU Natural History Museum, where the reception was held.   

We look forward to staying in close contact with Mia during her retirement. 

Congratulations, Mia!
