Outstanding Service Awards 2006-2007


Jodi Lieske
Continuous Service Award

Working in the Degree Clearance area of the Office of Financial Aid and Registrar since October 2001, Jodi has made numerous improvements to the degree clearance process. She was asked to serve as Duluth representative on the all-campus task force to create an Electronic Application for Degree. After persevering in that work, advocating for the Duluth campus, spending hours testing the system and providing presentations for a number of campus groups, the value of her service was seen. In Fall 2005, students were finally able to file their application for degree online.

Her service to students certainly doesn’t stop there. Jodi has also been involved in valuable improvements to the Commencement Program. She was instrumental in automating the production of the Undergraduate Commencement Program, researching an innovative way to download the information from PeopleSoft into a database that could be used to produce the Program. This work saved campus resources, both in time and money. And last summer Jodi worked with technical support staff to create a Web site, enabling students to check their information for the Commencement Program online, rather than requiring they go to the Student Affairs Office to check the information on printed lists.
