Congratulations to Jessica (Jess) Gauchel. She is a member of a cross-school Faculty Support Administrators Network that was selected to receive a President’s Innovation Fund Award from President Drew Faust’s office for the Faculty Support Administrators Network.
Jess and her team members will share best practices in management and improve community building for faculty support staff. The President's Administrative Innovation Fund was created to catalyze new approaches to academic administration, service delivery, and talent development. Ninety-two applications representing schools, departments, and units across the University were received. Through a rigorous judging process, nine outstanding projects in a wide range of areas, including diversity, sustainability, and training were funded.
