Mary patiently and enthusiastically explained financial statements to me at the 11th hour, while on deadline for a grant proposal. She is always going above and beyond for the Education Systems Center team and is such a strong cheerleader for our work. We couldn’t do it without Mary.

Salina is the best! With the craziness of the semester starting she has worked in overdrive to help get all our instructors into the system so they have access to all our platforms for teaching. She is a true gem in HR. This semester would not be happening without her.

Julie is consistently professional and effective in her support of faculty and the programs in our department. Due to turnover and staffing shortages, Julie has taken on extra duties above and beyond her normal job tasks. I feel so lucky to have her on the team. Thank you for all you do, Julie!
