It is my pleasure to support Dr. Johnson’s promotion to Associate Professor.
I have enjoyed working with Dr. Johnson on curriculum and assessment projects for the School of Business and Professional Studies. In particular, I was fortunate that Jalin volunteered to serve in a leadership role to integrate Institutional Learning Outcomes with Program Learning Outcomes.
This project was a large institution-wide initiative that required a rich understanding of assessment. Jalin not only demonstrated a thorough understanding of program assessment, but she also shared dedicated enthusiasm for work that many faculty do not easily embrace.
Jalin’s commitment resulted in improved signature assignments and rubrics, which contribute to enhanced curriculum, teaching, and learning. In my experience with Dr. Johnson, I have admired her perseverance, sincere concern for students and colleagues, and upbeat attitude.
