Irma O'Dell

The Staley School of Leadership Studies will host a retirement reception honoring Irma O'Dell, associate professor, from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, May 2, in 123 Leadership Studies Building. Formal remarks will be at 4:30 p.m.

O'Dell joined the Staley School faculty in July 2005 and has encouraged students, helped them create learning communities and supported their engagement in critical thinking during her time at K-State and through her 39-year career in higher education. She has held a key role in program assessment and her scholarship interests have included civic engagement, identity, social identity, relational leadership, stereotype threat and leisure across lifespan.

Please join us in congratulating O'Dell on her accomplishments in her career and wish her the best as she moves to her next adventure.
