Brandi Noll `05

Brandi Noll `05 was hired in February 2022 by the United Nations to serve on a global UNICEF project as an Education Specialist in Reading. As the only Reading Specialist on the team of six, she is charged with the task of revising and re-aligning the reading portion of the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MCIS) to global standards. First created and used in the mid 1990s, the MCIS has become the "largest source of statistically sound and internationally comparable data on children and women worldwide." The data collected is used to determine educational levels of children around the world in both math and reading, and to drive policy and planning within countries and nations. 

She also teach courses in literacy education at the University of Akron.
