We note with great sadness, the passing of Janice Yalden, Professor Emeritus of Linguistics and Applied Language Studies at Carleton, founding Director of Carleton’s Centre for Applied Language Studies, and Dean of the Faculty of Arts during the 80’s and 90’s.

Professor Yalden spent many years at Carleton as a researcher, teacher, and administrator.  She also played a formative and visionary leadership role in the creation of what we refer to today as the School of Linguistics and Language Studies.

Our condolences go out to her family and friends, and to others whose lives she touched.  (Obituary)
