Erin Bailey-Sun, Alumni & Constituent Relations

Thanks to Erin Bailey-Sun, the UWAA/ACR team and everyone across campus who produced and attended the Mighty Tieton Block Party. The success of Mighty Tieton wasn’t just the content, it was the partnerships and collaborations across the University that made it so great. These partnerships include the School of Art, Foster School of Business, Human Centered Design and Engineering, the College of Pharmacy, the College of Built Environments, CoMotion, The College of Architecture, College of Arts and Sciences, and the Libraries.

Chris McEwen, ATS & Barron Cato, PMRA

Kudos to Chris McEwen and Barron Cato for jumping in at the very (and I mean VERY) last minute to participate in the ‘Planning a Killer Event’ panel discussion at this year’s Engagement Summer Session. They provided interesting and useful insight into managing event data, migrating to Cvent, and modeling and analytics for event data. Without their contribution the ‘data’ portion of this presentation would have surely devolved into 30 minutes of me grumbling about ADVANCE.

Export+ Team, Information Management

Kudos to the Export+ team for all of their hard work leading up to the beta launch of this excellent new Reportal list download tool. Special thanks to Jenny Acevedo-Barga, Dapeng Chen, Alex Ichinoe, Sarah Maloy, and Daranee Oakley for their creativity and expertise in turning so many great ideas into a practical and intuitive solution.

Kerry MacDonald, ACR Marketing & Communications

Kerry has been wearing a couple of big hats during the search for a new Traffic Coordinator. Not only has she kept the ship moving smoothly, Kerry has managed to launch a new project management software program while being stretched a bit thin. The ASE team appreciates all that you do Kerry – thank you!

Gift Services Team

Thank you to the Gift Services team for the thorough cleaning of the S1 staff refrigerators this week. The team performed this task, with humor and grace, as they found items with 2014 and 2015 expiration dates, but now the fridges are sparkly clean – kudos to the team!
