Join us for this Lunch with series to meet the Dean of the College of Literature, Arts, and Science: Anne Curzan.

Prior to becoming Dean in 2019, Curzan held multiple administrative roles, including Associate Dean for the Humanities for LSA, Faculty Athletics Representative for the University of Michigan, and Director of the English Department Writing Program. She teaches courses on the history of English, English grammar, language and gender, and the dynamics of conversations.

Dean Curzan, as a trained linguist who studies the history of the English language, has dedicated a great part of her career to helping students and the broader public understand linguistic diversity as part of cultural diversity, and change in language as a natural part of languages. Her TEDx talk at UM called “What makes a word ‘real’?” has over 1.2 million views.

At Michigan, Curzan aims to promote a culture based on contributing to the common good, the power of learning, the value of play, and the importance of well-being.
