CALL Bulletin Spring Issue 255

The Spring issue of the CALL Bulletin is finally here!

Thank you to all the authors who were able to get articles in during a very stressful and busy time.  In this article we say goodbye to a retiring colleague, learn about keeping our data secure, get some information on the CALL Zoom Happy Hours (next one tomorrow, FYI), and congratulate the CALL award winners.  We also bid farewell to Jessie LeMar in her last message as President of CALL.

In looking toward the Fall Issue, we are welcoming articles on Reopening (or not) in the Time of COVID.  We would like to hear from every CALL institution about what reopening plans look like there, to get an idea of what types of strategies, successes, and pitfalls we are all experiencing.  We will be reaching out to specific members but if you would like to author a piece for the Fall issue please reach out to one of the CALL Editors (Emily Barney, Emily Byrne, or Matt Timko) so we can get you on the list.
