2008-2009 OUTSTANDING SERVICE AWARDS
Continuous Service Award

Jody O’Connor


Whether dealing with current UMD students on their financial aid, teaching 5th graders about post-secondary educational opportunities, presenting financial aid workshops for high school counselors or working with students at the American Indian Learning Resource Center, Jody O’Connor always provides helpful information with a caring and courteous approach.

Jody has been active with the Minnesota Association of Financial Aid Administrators, providing useful connections with financial aid professionals throughout the state and assisting our Financial Aid department in staying current on the latest state and federal financial aid issues. Her administration of the Minority Financial Aid Programs and work with equity students is invaluable for the campus.

Jody also works as Financial Aid Liaison for UMD Athletics and manages the Special Circumstance Appeals process for UMD Financial Aid. These represent very opposite ends of the financial aid spectrum: compliance with very specific regulations and dealing with the human emotions that come with financially difficult situations. Jody’s professional but caring approach is a credit to UMD and her department. It is a pleasure to present her with this award.
