Outstanding Service Award 2002
Continuous Service

Mary Duff

Thanks to the continuous dedication and hard work of Mary, UMD has one of the top tutoring programs in the nation. She has been with the center since its inception in 1989 and oversees all tutor recruitment.

Amazingly, she schedules 85-100 tutors each semester; coordinates their orientations and evaluations; plans and maintains the center’s budget, program publicity and marketing; and maintains and nurtures faculty and staff contacts with the academic departments.

Through Mary’s guidance and mentorship, many of the tutors come to see the tutoring center as their home and connection with UMD. She knows every tutor by name and mentors each one is some special way, writing dozens of letters of recommendations every year. Plus she’s invited to countless weddings and baby showers!

For 14 years, Mary has been the heart and soul of the tutoring center, and it is with our thanks and appreciation that we present her with this Continuous Service award.
