A huge shoutout to Dr. Gabe Grant for assisting and taking the lead on many of our Open House efforts/initiatives  While it takes a combined team effort, because of Dr. Grant's continued vision and leadership, the School of Technology has been highly successful in marketing and drawing attention to our four new undergraduate programs. Keep up the incredible work Dr. Grant!

Dean Newell is leading the search committee for the new Dean of the College of Education. He is congenial and constructive while displaying professionalism, patience, and precision. Search committees are exhausting as the work is extensive, but we've proceeded smoothly under Dean Newell's leadership!

On his day of, WHILE SICK WITH THE FLU, Robert really stepped up to shed some light on an issue that was outside the scope of just about everyone else on campus. He is a tremendously valuable asset to the EIU community and shows his dedication to it day in and day out.

I just want to shout out to Zach for his tremendous work in his community this year.  Not only has he brought a steady leadeship to his RA staff, he has proposed ideas to advocate for improving his residents' living situations.  Zach has also done a phenomenal job being involved professionally with our professional organizations for the region.  Zach designed an excellent Lunch and Learn event that brought a group together to hear a faculty member speak, which was reall beneficial to all who attended.  Zach has been a constant problem solver and handled some difficult situations with residents.  Overall great work this year!  I really appreciate your dedication to the departmnt and EIU.

Libby has been a tremendous asset to the housing team this year.  She has built a great community with a lot of buy in from residents.  I am so grateful for her ability to handle difficult situations.  Libby has gone above and beyond to find resolutions to several roommate conflicts and worked tirelessly to promote caring and understanding, while finding great solutions for her residents.  Thank you so much for your hard work and innovative mind.  Your willingness to provide great ideas to improve the resident experience is very much appreciated!

Alexis has done phenomenal work this semester.  She has built a great community in Pemberton hall and really created a sense of belonging and buy in with her residents.  Most notably, Pemberton Hall had a haunted house in the month of October that raised over $1000 for Hope East Central Illinois.  The event was incredibly engaging and a lot of fun for members of the Charleston community to attend.  Keep up the amazing work that you do!

Jeff has made a point to be available to meet with potential students during their campus visit time. Thank you for being flexible and changing meeting times for these students. You are making an impact on their college decision and their decision within their major.

I am so grateful for all of Jeff’s help with D2L. He is always willing to help out at a moment’s notice, and is always so thorough in getting to the bottom of any issue. He is also an extremely patient teacher and excellent communicator, meaning he doesn’t just solve problems, but teaches you how to avoid/solve problems in the future. Jeff’s can-do attitude has helped me to maximize the potential of what D2L can do for me and my students. Thank you Jeff!

Sandra went above and beyond this past week when she helped me take my large togo order from the food court to my family in the parking lot of the Union. We were running late and were down to one car so her assistance gave me time to eat with my family.  She is another shining example of who we are at EIU!!  Thank you so much

Andy is doing an awesome job in his outreach efforts to students and various groups on campus. Students know him by name, and he is often seen helping them with their research needs in the research help lab in Booth Library. Andy has also built partnerships with many RSOs on campus to help with library exhibits and programming. Thanks for all your hard work, Andy! Go Panthers!

Katie has been doing an amazing job as Interim Chair! This semester has been challenging for our Dept for a number of reasons and Katie has dedicated herself to keeping  things running as smoothly as possible while continuing to ensure our students’ needs are kept at the forefront of all decisions.  Her commitment has definitely not gone unnoticed!
