CEHD Holiday Reception Honorees
Chris McBride to Retire as ERC Associate Director
Longtime Education Resource Center Associate Director Chris McBride will be retiring after 19 years of service at UD. Chris started at the ERC in 1999, and earned her Master of Science in Library and Information Science from Syracuse University while on staff. She became Associate Director in 2010 upon the retirement of former ERC Associate Director Peggy Dillner. Chris collaborated with OET in the CEHD Do2Learn Makerspace and the UD Ed Tech and APPLE Access conferences, coordinated the CEHD Toys for Tots and Food Bank drives, and worked with the Laundromat Library League to provide books for underprivileged children.
Faculty and staff who have worked with Chris throughout her time at UD have expressed great appreciation for her helpfulness and support, and many came out to wish her well at a December 3 reception at Caffé Gelato.
Chris will officially retire on January 4, but will stay on part-time until the new ERC Associate Director comes on board. We wish Chris all the best in all her future ventures!
