View Bio Past President | Joyce Agee

Associate Director of Development, Libraries Administration

As UW Libraries Associate Director of Advancement, I am very conscious of the budgetary challenges facing the University. Working closely with private donors, corporations and foundations, I raise funds and increase the visibility of the Libraries and University in the community. Before moving here, I lived and worked in Australia and served as vice-president of the Chisholm Institute of TAFE, supporting technical and further education.

View Bio Nadine Gruhn

Managing Director, Center for Enabling New Technologies Through Catalysis Chemistry

I would like to serve on PSO so that I can learn more about the governance of UW and connect with my fellow professionalstaff. I've spent my entire career as professional staff at flagship state research universities. Since March 2008 I have been with UW as Managing Director of the Center for Enabling New Technologies Through Catalysis, which is a National Science Foundation Center for Chemical Innovation administered out of UW with participants at 13 universities and National Labs around the U.S. and Canada. Previous to my position at UW, I was a staff scientist at the University of Arizona Department of Chemistry for over 12 years. During my time at Arizona I was very active as a representative and officer in the Appointed Professional Advisory Council, the Arizona governance organization comparable to PSO. I look forward to continuing to learnmore about UW and contributing my skills to PSO.

I have been working on campus in Housing and Food Services for just over ten years and have been excited to see all of the growth and changes we have embraced. The future holds a great deal more challenges and we have the opportunity to impact these changes for positive outcomes. As important members of the campus community it is imperative that we participate in order to impact change. PSO provides a venue for community, information and collaboration and I feel my skills working with diverse groups, collaboration with others and my energy would serve the PSO.

Prior to joining the UW in 2009, I have had over six years of experience working in student affairs and higher education across the country. Since joining the First Year Programs team, I have networked with colleagues across campus and presented regionally about the great work we are accomplishing. My goal would be to be to provide awareness about the PSO board especially to professionals who have just joined the UW community, specifically creating awareness about the vision and core values to the large group of professionals utilizing various methods of technology.
