2007-2008 OUTSTANDING SERVICE AWARDS
Project Service Award

Graduation Planner

 

Lisa Rigoni Reeves

In fall 2001, Lisa Reeves of the Knowledge Management Center, developed the first prototype model of the Graduation Planner. In the following six years, leading up to its successful September 2007 release, she nurtured it through the process, contributing ongoing and continuous input into the development, soliciting information, explaining its purpose, reporting on the project's status and spending significant amounts of time in numerous trips to the Twin Cities. As the project lead at UMD, Lisa was the single "go-to" person on this campus for the Grad Planner project and still managed, during those six years of development, to successfully fulfill all her other duties in the Knowledge Management System area.

The University of Minnesota Graduation Planner is an extraordinarily useful tool for students to track their academic progress, a tool that is perfectly aligned with the University's goal to improve graduation rates. While it is still new, as of December 2007 there were more than 13,000 plans system-wide, 4211 of them for UMD students.

For her steadfast and earnest efforts on a very worthy long-term goal, I am pleased to award Lisa Rigoni Reeves with this project award.
