2007-2008 OUTSTANDING SERVICE AWARDS
Continuous Service Award

 

Barbara Beattie

With more than 20 years at UMD, Barb brings a substantial amount of campus experience to her role as Transfer Specialist in the Admissions office. That time in service and breadth of knowledge provide the campus with a "go to" person for transfer student issues. It also provides the skill and expertise to evaluate transfer admissions applications and enables UMD to reach its transfer enrollment targets each term. But, to transfer students looking at UMD, what she provides is so much greater than evaluating applications and meeting projected numbers.

Barb provides a personalized touch for students who have not yet found their college "home." She is known for being a "strong advocate" for students in need, no matter the issue. Intuitive, positive in approach, and knowledgeable, she demonstrates a strong commitment to the happiness of our students, leading to their improved satisfaction with their college experience, and our higher completion and retention rates.

Barb consistently goes above and beyond, willingly offering her expertise and her energies to serve the students, her department and the campus. With her reputation for doing what it takes to make things right for students, she is a great asset to UMD and I am pleased to present her with this award.
