Outstanding Service Award
Continuous Service

Carol Threinen

Carol Threinen served as Administrtative Director in the Office of Vice Chancellor of Finance and Operations from July 1988 to August 2001. Carol needed to not only be knowledgeable about the wide variety of activites in her Vice Chancellor area but also had to be a credible responder to requests for action. She helped develp a reputation for quality service which was accomplished because of her commitment to an outstanding team effort.

During her tenure with VCFO, she coauthored the Childcare Study that is being used to support the development of the child care center being designed for Kirby Plaza

The Retiree's Luncheon and the Silver Bulldog Dinner recognizing the service of long-term UMD employees also came about because of her willingness to add one more duty to an already busy work life.

Neighborhood Meetings and Campus Night Walks which have been held for the past ten years were handled in every detail by Carol, along with the campus meetings with the Minnesota House of Representatives and Senate.

My congratulations to Carol for the well-deserved Continuous Service Award.
