Outstanding Service Award
Project Award

Betty Greene, Vice Chancellor for Finance and Operations
Linda Kinnear, Vice Chancellor for Academic Administration

Last year, the University of Minnesota Board of Regents outlined a dramatic change in the delegation of authority for University Administrators. A project was put in place which identified each of the various decisions that a University Administrator could make and outlined the process by which an Administrator would receive authority to make the decision, to recommend the decision or in many cases, would not have the authority to make decisions with regard to the University responsibility.

It was essential that the project be done with precision and absolute clarity. Every time an Administrator is hired or leaves the University, a new delegation tree has to be created in that work unit. Betty and Linda were identified as the keepers of those records for UMD. They developed the model, entered the data, maintained and updated records. They should be proud of their work and we clearly are proud of them.

It gives me great pleasure to present Betty and Linda with this Project award.
