Barry Tolchin The past few months, Barry has really stepped up in his office. Being down 2 advisors, he took on all duties handled by our office in addition to our advising load, including managing scholarships, assisting faculty, scheduling courses , managing our industry mentorship program, assisting our student organizations, coordinating our Undergraduate Studies Committee, and more. Barry is an asset to our department. He continues to exemplify what it means to be a true leader and advocate for our students. We are lucky to have him and really appreciate all of his hard work!
Liz Riter I could nominate Liz every month. She just came back from maternity leave, and never missed a beat. She consistently takes on extra responsibilities within the office, and creates a very positive and student-centered atmosphere. I am constantly amazed at her productivity, ability to balance everything we have going on, and genuine care for our students, faculty, and staff.
