​The University of Lodz in Lodz, Poland, has recognized Central Michigan University faculty member Krystyna Nowak-Fabrykowski as a VIP graduate.

Nowak-Fabrykowski teaches early childhood education in the Department of Teacher Education and Professional Development.

She was born in Poland and received her Master of Education Degree at the University of Lodz, where she conducted research in France investigating Célestin Freinet's Methods of Teaching and Theory of Teachers for her master's thesis.

Lodz selects its greatest alumni — experts; successful people; personalities from the worlds of science, art, politics and business — for the VIP Graduate Program, which offers activities and valuable initiatives for the development of Polish education, including mentoring, expert lectures and special events.

"Receiving this award from my alma mater, from the country where I was born, it is more than just acknowledgement of my professional achievements; it is also a testimony to the hard work based on internationally recognized research and publications," Nowak-Fabrykowski said. "It means that in the last  37 years outside Poland, I did something important, and I made significant progress in the area of child development."

Nowak-Fabrykowski received her award Feb. 8 during the annual meeting of VIP graduates at the Biedermann Palace in Lodz, Poland.
