Remembering Luis Moll

Mar 12, 2024

We were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Luis Moll on March 5, 2024. Below is an In Memorium written by the University of Arizona, College of Education (source).


On Tuesday, March 5, the COE community learned that Dr. Luis Carlos Moll, Professor Emeritus at the University of Arizona, had passed away. Dr. Moll served the university for over three decades, touching the lives of innumerable local and international students, faculty, and staff. Dr. Moll’s academic endeavors always centered on social and educational justice for minoritized families, children, and youth, and his theoretical framework of families’ Funds of Knowledge, developed with educators and anthropologists, has been used to generate policy and educational strategies that prioritize the well-being and best practices for Latinx and diverse populations. Simply put, his legacy in the fields of education, psychology, and language studies in general is remarkable. Thanks to Dr. Moll, many of his students worldwide are continuing his legacy as educators, professors, and researchers. Dr. Moll is survived by his wife, Ana, two children, Carlos and Eric, and grandson, Eric Luis.

Church Funeral Mass will be on Thursday, March 21st at 10:30 at St. Thomas the Apostle Church.

In lieu of flowers, his family asks that you please donate to Brigada Solidaria del Oeste, a community organization that helps rebuild homes and provides immediate help after natural disasters.
