A Message from the Faculty Director of Academic Programs: In Memoriam of Continuing Lecturer James McElroy

Jim McElroy, Continuing Lecturer from the University Writing Program and long-term Study Abroad Faculty Leader, passed away on July 3, 2021. 

Jim joined UC Davis as a writing faculty in the early 1990s. A charismatic instructor, Jim breathed fire and passion in his Summer Abroad program, first offered in 2005. While he had originally focused the program on Irish literature and nature taking students to Ireland, Jim, visionary that he was, re-imagined the program many times over the years and offered many "translations."
