The University of Washington lost a dear friend recently. Dr. Karma Hadjimichalakis of the Foster School of Business passed away Feb. 21 after a long illness.
Karma was Principal Lecturer in Business Economics and Finance, and served as co-host for the popular “State of the Economy” forum along with her colleague Dr. Ed Rice. A native of Utica, New York, she joined the UW faculty in 1970 and won more than 45 major teaching awards, including the first PACCAR Award for Excellence in Teaching, the Foster School’s highest recognition of teaching excellence.
Karma was a favorite of many UW students and alumni, and the UWAA wishes her family all the best. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to either Northwest Harvest or the Karma Impact Fund (click on “Search” and type in “Karma Impact Fund”).
